Curbside Recycling Election Period Coming This Fall
The Town of Rockville is working with Washington County Solid Waste District to provide a recycling decision period this fall. Now is the best time for residents to choose how they would like to recycle as individual households. All residents will be offered a decision period from September 1 — November 30, 2020. This means you will be able to opt in or out of the BluCan curbside recycling service if you wish. Information is being provided to help you know how to change your status.
Those who don’t wish to change their current BluCan status do not need to do anything — your service status won’t change unless you change it.
Community bins will remain available for those who choose to take recyclables there instead of using curbside pickup.
Please note that the higher the rate of participation among residents, the more cost-effective curbside recycling will be. The Washington County Solid Waste Board has negotiated terms for a ten year contract with Republic Services to continue to collect the waste and recycling in Washington County.

Town of Rockville Notice
Notice is hereby given that the Rockville Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, the 8th day of September 2020 at 6:00 p.m. via Zoom’s online teleconferencing portal to receive public input on the amendments to the Rockville Town Land Use Ordinances and maps and this meeting will have an anchor location at the Rockville Community Center Recreation Hall located at 43 E. Main Street where social distancing and masks will be required.
The goal of these amendments was to determine if there was anything in the Town’s Code or Ordinances that were not in compliance or alignment with current State and/or Federal Law. The Code needed to be modernized in order to comply with state statutory charges – particularly the “plain language” mandate.
The proposed Rockville Town Land Use Code is available online at
https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1hAvWhejwDGGB_A7SWnzhHUv_rfcMKFCk?usp=sharing or a copy is available at the Town Office. More detailed information regarding all public hearings may be obtained by contacting Town Clerk, Vicki S. Bell at (435) 772-0992 between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. Monday thru Friday.

Written or email comments should be received no later than 1:00 p.m. Tuesday, September 8, 2020.

The public is invited to participate in all town meetings. If you want to participate in this Town meeting, please call the Town Clerk, Vicki S.

The Utah Division of Forestry, Fire and State Land
has obtained a grant to remove invasive Russian Olive and Tamarisks from Rockville in 2020!
This is your opportunity to rid yourself of these invasive species at no cost to you!!!
If interested, forms are available in the Town Office.
Phase I will be contracted out within the next month and will be cut in March. This treatment is at no cost to the landowner (if they fall within the project boundary), and if funds are available one re-treatment will be conducted the following year. The treatment will be cutting Tamarisk and Russian Olive and spraying the stumps with herbicide immediately after to limit re-sprouting.
Phase II will be contracted in the fall. So any landowners who don't make the first round will have a chance in the fall to sign up.
Here are some informational pamphlets:
