Recycling Market Development Zones

WHAT IS A RECYCLING ZONE?

In 1996, the Utah Legislature created the Utah Recycling Market Development Zone Program which focuses on recycling as an economic development tool.  As more products are recycled and used to manufacture new products the economy will be stimulated through new company expansion or formation and the creation of additional jobs. The zone legislation was established to incent businesses to use recycled materials in their manufacturing processes and create new products for sale.  It also benefits business or individuals that collect, process, distribute recycled materials.  Composting is considered to be eligible recycling operation.
