Several cities offering free fall clean up trips to the landfill

HERRIMAN, Utah — Cities all along the Wasatch Front are hosting fall clean up days for people to dump their trash for free.

Residents can take unwanted items like old appliances, household materials and other items that are too large for regular trash pick up to the dump sites, in Herriman, Provo, Riverdale or West Bountiful.

“You can come bring your household trash,” said Jon LaFollette with Herriman City. “There’s even a spot for hazardous waste like paint, pesticides, household cleaners or taking large appliances this year.”

The windstorm may have been several weeks ago but many are still cleaning up debris and the Herriman dump site will take it for you.

“You can bring tree limbs or anything like that or green waste, you can bring it to the green waste section,” LaFollette said. “Any household debris can be accepted as well.”

LaFollette says another need for fall clean up days is because of the pandemic. People are cleaning out their homes and starting home improvement projects, creating a lot of waste and a need for a place to dump those unwanted items.

“We always have a good turnout but our spring program which took place after the pandemic started did see a lot of participation and we’re expecting the same here,” LaFollette said.

Herriman isn't the only city with clean up days. Provo has six dumpsters located throughout the city until November, West Bountiful has a location until October 3, and Riverdale City’s starts on October 5.

You do have to be a resident of the city to dump at each site.
