Garbage cans are provided to residential customers by the city. Each can has a serial number that connects it to a specific address. When you move, please do not take your garbage can with you. Additional cans can be obtained for $8.00 per month by calling 801-546-1235, but must be retained by the customer for a minimum of six months.
Garbage days are shown on the following map: Garbage collection map (print for a more legible copy)
Please place your can at curbside by 6:00 a.m. on your collection day. All refuse must be placed inside the can.
Garbage collection does not take place on the following holidays: New Years Day, Memorial Day, July 4, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Garbage collection will be delayed one day following a holiday.
If you have more than one garbage can, maintain a distance of at least 6' between cans. Do not place cans underneath trees and keep them 15' clear of mailboxes, automobiles, or other obstacles. To facilitate better snow removal and mail delivery, and to reduce pranks and vandalism, bring garbage cans in from the street as quickly as possible after disposal. If your garbage can is lost or stolen you will be required to pay approximately $80.00 for a replacement.
DO place these items in your container: Normal household refuse, cardboard boxes (flatten or cut to save space), grass, leaves, yard trimmings, tree limbs or shrub trimmings (cut to fit inside container).
DO NOT place these items in your container: Hot ashes or coals, dirt, sod, rocks, concrete, flammable materials (oil, gas or paint), large bulky items (appliances, furniture, metal objects), construction, remodeling or demolition debris.
Energy Recovery Facility/Landfill
Citizens who would like to dispose of residential waste themselves are encouraged to do so by taking refuse to either the Energy Recovery Facility or the Landfill (follow signs on Highway 193 in Layton). Children and pets are not allowed outside vehicles at either facility and uncovered or unsecured loads will be charged double.
Hours for these facilities are:
Energy Recovery Facility
7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday-Friday (year round)
7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Monday-Saturday (March-October)
7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday-Saturday (November-February)
Fees (both facilities):
$5.00 pickup truck load or less
$25.00/ton ($5.00 minimum) for vehicles larger than a pickup truck
Items accepted at both the Energy Recovery Facility and the Landfill: household quantities of batteries, motor oil, paint, antifreeze, old computer equipment, propane tanks (if empty), and tires. By spring of 2003 a household hazardous waste disposal site will be in place so that you can dispose of gasoline and kerosene. Because of the additional cost associated with processing tires, a charge of $2.00 per tire is assessed. Refrigerators must be accompanied with a certificate documenting Freon removal ($30.00 fee assessed).
Used motor oil can also be disposed of at the Davis County Vehicle Emission Center, 520 West Old Mill Lane, Kaysville.
Items accepted at the Landfill: Clean, green yard waste (which will be chipped and reused), sheetrock, large appliances, construction and demolition debris, wood larger than 4'x8', tree stumps, yard waste larger than 4'x8', asphalt, asphalt shingles and asbestos (non-friable asbestos accepted, however, special handling fees apply). Friable asbestos cannot be accepted at either facility.
Items not accepted at either the Energy Recovery Facility or the Landfill: human remains, powder or liquid waste or chemical explosives, chemicals, highly volatile material or explosives of any kind, radioactive material, hazardous waste of any kind, lead products of any kind, wood exceeding the dimensions of 2' x 2' x 5' or lumber over 6' long.
To dispose of animal remains, call 801-771-5661 (special handling fees may apply).
At both facilities there is a large bin to dispose of items that cannot be accepted but will be taken to other facilities (tires, paint, etc.).
