Note:  Due to illegal dumping and the wind & snow storms in April, we are currently 10-14 days behind schedule.

Find your bulk waste day.

The 2017 spring bulk waste collection will begin March 13 and continue through mid-June. All residents will be receiving a bright green card in the mail the week of February 20. The front of the card will show your pickup date. 

  • Place waste on the curb in front of your home no later than 7:00 a.m. on your scheduled day. We ask that you put your waste out for collection no sooner than 2 days prior to your collection date. Please be courteous and keep waste in front of your own home and not your neighbor's.
  • We ask that residents place all green waste (branches, shrubs, etc) in one pile so that it can be mulched. Place all other waste in another pile at least 2 feet away from green waste. In addition, don't park vehicles within 15 feet of either pile. We make every effort to mulch green waste, however due to time constraints, these items may be placed in the same truck for disposal.
  • We will not accept: Rocks, concrete, gravel, dirt, sod, construction debris (such as sheet rock, glass, roofing materials, tile, bricks, or fence posts with concrete), vehicle parts, tires, propane tanks, oil, gas, batteries, paint, flammable, toxic or hazardous materials. For disposal of Household Hazardous Waste, please call 385-468-3862 or 801-974-6902.
  • Material, including tree limbs and stumps should not exceed 4 feet in length or 18 inches in diameter. Items exceeding this may not be collected.
  • Loose material such as leaves, twigs, pine needles, and wood chips should be placed in trash bags or boxes. These items may also be placed inside your garbage container for regular weekly collection.
  • Items containing freon (refrigerators, freezers, and air conditioners) must have the chemical removed by a professional and a copy of the receipt attached to the item.
  • Lawn mowers and snow blowers must have the oil and gasoline removed. These actions must be completed before the items will be accepted at the landfill.
  • 55-gallon containers must be emptied and have the tops removed.
  • Recycle items that can be reused at a local charity. 
  • Scavenging through piles is discouraged but unenforceable by law.
  • If you see illegal dumping, please get the license plate number and contact the Police Department at 801-799-3000.
  • If you see waste placed curbside sooner than allowed (2 days prior to the pick up date), please contact Code Enforcement at 801-568-7254.
  • This service is for homeowners who for pay for waste collection services only.
