Ready to clear the garage of unwanted and never–used items? Need to dispose of the cut grass and tree trimmings that weigh down the black garbage cans? Take advantage of Provo’s annual Fall Cleanup!



Separate yard waste and metals and dispose of the material in dumpsters at six locations throughout the city from September 26 – November 5, Monday – Friday from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm and Saturday 8:00 am to 3:00 pm. Dumpsters at the Compost Yard are available during the fall cleanup from Monday - Saturday from 7:00 am - 5:00 pm.


Please do not dump after hours. Dumpsters will be closed nightly. It is unlawful to leave items on the ground. Illegal dumping costs thousands of dollars at the expense of Provo taxpayers and possible discontinuance of the program.


Larger loads, double-axle trailers, and loose green waste loads may be redirected to the Transfer Station or Provo City Compost Yard at the discretion of the cleanup attendant.

➤ September 26 – October 1 2027 W 820 N — Pole Yard 1625 S Industrial Parkway — compost yard

I am pleased to announce that Provo Girls Summit is happening this year on Thursday, October 6 from 6:00 - 8:00 pm at the Provo Library! If you haven't been able to attend this free career exploration event for girls ages 8-12, than mark your calendar and get ready to meet one-on-one with professional women from a variety of fields—including business, tech, academia, art, science, and more.



The goal is to help Provo girls make new connections, discover new interests, and imagine new possibilities. Girls will be able to ask questions and learn more about their vast choices ahead of them in their futures.


Registration opens on Thursday, September 22 at provogirlssummit.org - so save the date and be ready to sign up (because this event fills up fast)!

United Way of Utah County’s Day of Caring is a wonderful opportunity to provide service to our community. This year, Provo City employees were able to help with four community gardens. We were able to weed, install new drip lines, plant flowers and bulbs, construct new grow boxes and picnic tables, spread mulch, re-cover a hoop greenhouse, and build new fencing. Many of our city employees participated, and I am grateful for their willingness to serve! ❤️


A special thank you to our crew leaders who managed each project with enthusiasm and skill….Doug Fallon, Jared Penrod, Phil Uhl, and Rylee Snelson.


Here are a few photos that were captured during the event:
