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 27 – November 6, 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.

Redistricting happens once every ten years and the maps decided on this year will determine your district for the next decade! I had a great interview with KUTV 2News about how YOU can get involved.



The Utah Independent Redistricting Commission will be at the Provo Recreation Center on Friday, October 8 from 6:00 - 9:00 PM to hear your comments and listen to your concerns. Come talk to the commissioners, explore drafted maps, and share your input in the redistricting process.


You can also visit uirc.utah.gov to submit formal comments and ideas on the suggested draft maps and even create your own maps using cutting-edge mapping software!


Your insights are crucial in creating districts that truly represent your community. I hope to see you there!

Big things are happening downtown, and we want to hear your thoughts! The development plan for the downtown and surrounding areas (the Downtown Master Plan) was created in 2015 and has been one of Provo’s most successful plans to date. As staff revises and updates the plan, we want to hear about your experiences with downtown.



Attendees at the Open House shared great insights! You can now review the recorded sessions here.


And we made a survey based on the questions from the open house. You can take the survey here.
