Neighborhood Cleanup Returns this Spring! Get the Details.

Spring is in the air, and that means it’s approaching time for the annual Neighborhood Cleanup Program to begin.  The Neighborhood Cleanup Program is an opportunity to dispose of large waste items that are too large to fit in recycling, composting/yard waste, or garbage bins.

Large items may be placed on the curb for pickup during the dates specified for your neighborhood. When your cleanup date approaches, a postcard (as seen below) will arrive in the mail.  Please make sure items are not blocking bike lanes, fire hydrants, storm drains, and sidewalks.  Additionally, please donate reusable items like furniture and toys!

Here are the details:

NCU Flyer 2016 FINALElectronics: Televisions, computers, printers, monitors and other electronics will not be picked up during the Neighborhood Cleanup Program. Electronics often contain hazardous materials such as lead, mercury and chromium. Learn more about electronics recycling and consider taking electronics to one of Salt Lake City’s Saturday e-waste collection events, or a Salt Lake County community collection event this summer.

Household Hazardous Waste: Car batteries, cleaners, fertilizers, antifreeze, paint, pesticides, motor oil, fuels and herbicides are also not accepted during the Neighborhood Cleanup Program. These materials can contaminate groundwater and harm the environment when disposed of improperly. Learn more about proper disposal and consider dropping them off at one of the 2016 Salt Lake County community collection events.

Look for a postcard in the mail with the cleanup dates for your neighborhood!  Call (801) 535-6999 with any questions.

  1. That’s great info at
    I got my postcard, but I need to know whether Canyon Road below Seventh Avenue is on the same week or some other week. This is for the Avenues Community Council web page and monthly newsletter.
    Thank you,

    • It begins in April and runs through September, depending on your neighborhood. We’re still finalizing exact dates for various neighborhoods for 2017, so stay tuned for your postcard in the mail with exact details!

    • We haven’t finalized the schedule for 2017. The program runs from April – October and you’ll get a postcard about 3 weeks in advance. If you need a reminder, call 801-535-6999. If you need disposal options in the meantime, you can contact a private hauler to take items to the landfill or the appropriate recycling facility.

    • Hello Rosita. Thanks for visiting SLCgreen’s blog. Kearns is a township in Salt Lake County, so Salt Lake City does not provide services to your area. Please get in touch with the Wasatch Front Regional Waste & Recycling District who should be able to answer your question:

    Yeah my biggest concern is there’s people out there in the city the don’t have the ability to get the stuff that are recyclable and good usable Furniture to the road or from the road to a place it’s recyclable.
    I have a better idea to this solution and that is to put together a fleet of vehicles that can go around and pick up all the good musical stuff for suckable stuff and ticket to report building that we can actually get at your people that need help and reuse the items and make still make money off of them but we need to network and put up a company together that can handle that I’ve done this before in New York I’ve done this here already this year starting with 5 piles pulling out I’ve got a lot of ideas to handle on this I need someone to get me get a hold of me at 801-410-3079 but I need grid layouts of everywhere of where the garbage is going when it’s getting there and so I can beat the trucks before the city cleans it up
