There is a change this year to the normal Provo City Cleanup.
This year the dumpsters will only be at one location, 430 North 500 West (North Park).

The details are below:

Spring Cleanup
March 23 - May 2, 2009

Get rid of your unwanted "stuff" during Spring Cleanup 2009. This year there will be dumpsters for trash, yard waste and metals at only one location for six weeks:

March 23 - May 2
430 North 500 West (North Park)
Monday - Saturday (dumpsters will be available until 3 pm on Saturdays)

Unacceptable Items
Please do not dump rocks, tires, concrete, tree stumps or pesticides in the dumpsters. For more disposal information call 852-6714. Or... some of these items may be taken to the demolition landfill in Lindon. Please call them to see what items they will accept at 225-8170.

Hours of Operation
Dumpsters will be at the designated locations Monday - Saturday. The hours the containers will be available are: Mondays - Fridays 8 am - 6 pm; and Saturdays 8 am - 3 pm. Please note that all locations will be closed nightly at 6 pm and that it is unlawful to leave items on the ground at any of the area locations.

Compost Station
The city has developed a very successful recycling program that makes beneficial use of yard waste items such as grass clippings, tree and shrubbery trimmings, weeds, leaves, etc. We encourage all residents to bring their organic yard waste to the compost station located at 1625 South Industrial Parkway. There is no charge for city residents to bring secured loads into the station. The Compost station hours are: 8 am - 6 pm Monday - Saturday (Spring, Summer, & Fall).

Transfer Station
Provo City residents who would like to take debris directly to the transfer station in Springville may do so free of charge, with coupon, during business hours from March 24 - May 3. The coupon was mailed to each residence during February in the Mayor’s Update. The transfer station does not accept rocks, concrete, large stumps, refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners or hazardous waste. If you have a question about your load, please call the station at 489-3027 or the Provo City Sanitation Department at 852-6714. All loads to the transfer station must be covered to avoid a $4.00 tarp fee.
