Provo City's Public Works Department has released the 2019 Holiday, Cleanup, and Special Pickup schedule. Be sure to take your garbage can to the curb according to your regular pickup day. During the weeks of major holidays, this service may be delayed one day depending on which day the holiday falls.
Holiday/Special Pick-up Schedule
For the 2019 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 6:00AM 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.
