The Sanitation Division provides garbage pickup, green yard waste recycling, and other solid waste community services.
View the2018 Sanitation Schedule in our city newsletter. Since Provo City is providing recycling service every week now, there is no need for a calendar showing "A and B" weeks. The calendar in the January newsletter shows holidays and whether garbage pickup is on schedule or delayed.
