Solid Waste (Garbage)

Garbage Pick-Up Schedule

Springville City provides residential curb side garbage collection service on a weekly basis. Please make sure garbage cans are put out on the street no later than 7 a.m. on the day of your garbage collection day or route day to avoid a $40.00 return pickup fee of $40.00.

Please call (801) 491-7867 with questions or if your garbage is missed. There is a $40.00 fee if the garbage truck has to come back to pick up your garbage or if you request an extra garbage or recycling pickup, on both garbage and recycling services.

When requesting an additional garbage can, you are agreeing and committing to having your additional garbage can for at least six months.

Do’s and Don’ts of Garbage Cans


  • Place can in street on flat surface where it cannot roll back into curb and tip over.
  • Place can facing forward as arrows show.
  • Make sure lid can completely close properly.
  • Have can on the road by 7 a.m. ready for service.


  • Don’t place can within 8 feet of a parked car or trailer, mailbox, tree, etc.
  • Don’t place can within 8 feet of a second can or neighbor’s can.
  • Don’t overfill can to the point the lid won’t close completely (if the lid can’t close completely, you are responsible for the spilled garbage).
  • Don’t place green waste or yard waste in the can (the City has a recycling center).
  • Don’t place construction materials in can (boards, bricks, concrete, etc.).
  • Don’t place hazardous materials in can (acids, paints, batteries, ashes, etc.).
  • Don’t place boxes, bags, etc. around the can (the Garbage Truck can only pick up cans).

Note:  If your garbage can does not meet these standards, it may not be dumped. There is a $40.00 fee if the garbage truck has to come back to pick up your garbage or if you request an extra garbage or recycling pickup, on both garbage and recycling services.
