Fall Cleanup 2023
Updated: Sep 26
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 25 – November 4, 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.
