Trans Jordan Landfill, located in South Jordan, is announcing a change regarding the acceptance of green waste. Effective December 1, 2023, Trans Jordan will no longer accept green waste for processing into products (i.e. compost, wood chips, etc.). Green waste will be accepted as solid waste and charged the regular gate rate.
Placing green waste in the landfill, along with other solid waste, will aid in the production of landfill gas which is then converted to energy. Energy collected will be placed on the electrical grid and provide a renewable energy source, powering up to 5,000 homes
Compost will remain for sale until December 1, 2024 or while supplies last.
