2018 Sanitation Schedule
Come rain or shine, Provo City provides garbage and yard waste collection service Monday – Thursday.

If you're not familiar with your trash pickup schedule, just visit Provo's interactive map at maps.provo.org/home and enter your home address.
During the weeks of major holidays, your garbage service may be delayed one day depending on which day the holiday falls. Please look at the dates below and take note of any upcoming changes to your regular trash pick-up schedule.
Holiday/Special Pick-up Schedule
For the 2018 schedule — New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas will be the only holidays the Sanitation Department will be closed. Garbage will be picked up one day late for those holidays. Below is the holiday sanitation schedule, which also includes yard waste collection beginning and ending dates, as well as spring and fall cleanup dates.
Garbage Pick-up Information
The best way to ensure your garbage is picked up is by following these tips:
Place cans on the side of the street by 6:00 AM on your scheduled day or, better yet, the night before. Remove cans from the curb within 24 hours after they have been emptied.
Keep cans away from parked vehicles, mail boxes and trees. Place cans 3’ apart and have plenty of clearance above cans.
Everything must fit inside the can so the lid will close. Dial 3-1-1 to schedule extra pickups.
When possible, bag the garbage that goes into the black cans.
Keep garbage out of green yard waste cans and blue recycling cans.
Check out the 2018 Sanitation Holiday Schedule found in the January 2018 Newsletter.
