In addition to the semi-annual Bulk Waste Collection Program, Sandy City will provide a 30 cubic yard (approx. 20' L x 8' W x 5' H) dumpster to a resident's home up to twice a year for up to a 72 hour period. This is a year-round program subject to the same rules and regulations as the regular Bulk Waste Program. The fee for use of the dumpster is $140 with the City paying the delivery and dumping charges.
The dumpsters may be used for yard debris (tree limbs, shrubbery, grass clippings, etc.) as well as building materials, household items including appliances, and furniture. Heavy items such as dirt, fill material, concrete and roofing shingles are acceptable but they can only fill up to 1/3 of the container.
Items that are not acceptable in the dumpster are toxic, hazardous or flammable materials, pesticides, herbicides, solvents, gasoline, motor oil, paints, batteries and tires. Fifty-five gallon drums will not be accepted unless the tops have been removed or the drum cut in half. Refrigerators, freezers, and central air units will not be accepted unless the freon has been removed. This must be done by a licensed technician and the driver must be furnished with a copy of the receipt.
Dumpsters can be placed either on the street or private property (due to snow removal, you may be required to place the dumpster in your driveway during the winter months). Though they are intended for private use, dumpsters can be used for neighborhood cleanup projects as well. Dumpsters will be scheduled for delivery some time between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m on the date requested.
Due to the popularity of the program, availability of the dumpsters varies throughout the year. Normally you will need to give at least 24 hours notice to schedule a dumpster, however from spring through early fall you may want to schedule 2 to 3 weeks in advance.
You can schedule your dumpster online or at the Public Works Facility at 8775 S 700 W. We accept cash, credit cards, checks or money orders payable to Sandy City at our facility. The online reservation system accepts credit cards only. The Dumpster Program is for Sandy City Residents only. They are not to be used by businesses or commercial contractors.
