Salem Days 2016
to all who helped
Recycling items may be taken to:
SUVSWD (South Utah Valley Solid Waste District) transfer station in Springville (2450 West 400 South) for a small fee.
Western Recycling has a recycling bin. They are located in South Provo (1776 South Colorado Ave). At this time there is no charge.
Because of the continued nuisance by the recycling bins, the Salem City Council has determined to remove the recycling bins at this time. They will look into other recycling options for the future though. We want to thank all residents who would use it properly (break down your boxes or wait and bring back your recycling items when there was room in the bins). Because of the miss use of the bins, (many of whom were not residents of Salem and would take advantage of our service to the residents of Salem), boxes were not being broken down, leaving the recycling items to the side of the bins, and individuals leaving items that are not recyclable, is why the council decided to remove them. The bins were dumped at least three times a week. Each time the bins are picked up and dumped it costs the city money. The city council feels bad about the continued abuse and the nuisance the bins have become to our beautiful city. You may still take your recycling items to the SUVSWD (South Utah Valley Solid Waste District) transfer station in Springville (2450 West 400 South) for a small fee or Western Recycling in South Provo (1776 South Colorado Ave) has a recycling bin (at this time there is no charge).
Pressurized Irrigation - South Bench of Salem
The City is continually trying to find ways to deal with water and issues related to pressurized irrigation. As the season is now warmer, water demand and usage have risen substantially. We are finding that neighborhoods along the south bench of Salem are experiencing fluctuation in water pressure and volume. These fluctuations are the result of a large number of users watering at the same time. In an effort to help resolve this issue, the City recommends and encourages users that live south of the Salem Canal (lower canal) to alternate watering schedules based on your house number.
The following suggestions could be taken immediately to increase the water pressure and volume issue you might be experiencing:
- Houses beginning with even number addresses are encouraged to water in the evening hours.
- Houses beginning with odd number addresses are encouraged to water in the early morning hours.
Please note that the current water regulations still apply. No watering between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. and NO watering Tuesday’s and Friday’s for residents. Just a reminder that on Tuesday and Friday the no watering restriction begins and ends at 12 midnight. The best way to help with this situation is to conserve water and not over water your yards.
Water conservation tips
Remember there is no outside watering between 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. every day. There is also no outside watering at all on Tuesdays and Fridays for residents and no watering on Tuesdays and Saturdays for commercial users.
Please help conserve water so additional water restrictions will not be needed.

We are sorry to inform you, but Salem City will NOT be doing a spring clean up and the green waste site has been closed. Salem City can no longer subsidize the green waste. You may go to the city office and pick up a voucher to take your green waste to the SUVSWD Transfer Station. You will be allowed 2 vouchers for the year. The voucher is good for a standard pick up truck load of green waste.
Please read the information.
If you have placed green waste on the side of the road to be picked up, please pick it up and dispose of it properly. Salem City is a beautiful city, we need your help to keep it that way.
RESIDENTS: Salem City needs your help. Please clean out the gutters in front of your property so the debris does not clog up the storm drains. If you have a storm drain grate in front of your house, please make sure there is no debris covering it. Thank you for your help with this matter.
