You can find the “Solid Waste Transfer Coupon” in your March Newsletter that is good for one pickup truck or single-axle trailer load.
Provo Compost Yard
The Compost Yard will be open all week during Spring Cleanup, and drop off will be FREE during those weeks. Hours of operation will be from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm, Monday through Thursday and 7:00 am – 5:00 pm, Friday and Saturday (weather dependent). Drop off material is limited to Provo residents who will need to come with a copy of a current City of Provo utility bill. No lumber, building material, treated wood, logs over 10” in diameter or trash at the Compost Yard.
Organic compost will be available to purchase for residents at $3.00 per yard, and for nonresidents at $6.00 per yard, depending on availability.
Yard Waste Recycling
Turn your organic yard waste into plant nourishing compost. Sign up for Green Can Yard Waste Collection by calling (801) 852-6000. Green cans are picked up once a week from March 2 – November 27. Your green yard waste cans will be emptied the same day as your regular garbage pickup. Please have your cans on the side of the road by 6:00 am.
Make sure that you are only putting yard waste in your green cans. We are unable to pick up green cans with unacceptable materials in them.
No rocks, dirt, sod, paper, building materials, stumps, roots or animal waste.
The lid should be able to close – brush/limbs no longer than 3’ or hanging over can.
Unwanted bicycles can be donated to Provo Bicycle Collective, a local nonprofit. This organization of bicycle enthusiasts refurbished nearly 500 bicycles last year and sent them back out into the local community. Depending on the quality and condition of your bike, it may be fixed by volunteers and given away to individuals in need, refurbished by professional mechanics and sold to fund the shop, or stripped for parts and recycled.
You can be assured that no bike donation goes to waste here and each bike is fully repaired and safety-inspected before leaving the shop for its new owner. Please see their website for shop location and hours. Tax-deductible receipts will be provided for your donation upon request.
