Connect / Disconnect Garbage Services

To connect or disconnect your residential garbage services, contact Utility Billing:

Extra garbage containers ($10/month) are available on the connect services form or may be obtained by calling 801-576-6504. There is a three month minimum commitment for extra containers.

Dumpster Rentals: Dumpsters of 20 or 30 cubic yards are available for rent. They may be used for yard debris, household items, and building materials. Due to the popularity of this program, be sure to reserve your dumpster two to three weeks in advance. To reserve, call 801-576-6501 and fill out the reservation form.

Garbage Pick-Up Schedule & Map

The City collects garbage on a weekly basis and recycling is on a bi-weekly basis. Your collection days are determined by the neighborhood boundaries. To find your pick-up schedule, type in your address in the Interactive Map or view the PDF map below:

What if my container was missed on pick-up day?

If your container was not emptied on your regularly scheduled pick-up day, call 801-576-6504. New Year's Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day could affect your pick-up day. If your pick-up falls on or after the holiday, your pick-up will be delayed by one day for that week only.

When should my garbage and recycle container be set out at the edge of the street for collection?         

Garbage and recycling containers must not be set out upon the street for collection prior to the day before collection and must be set out prior to seven o'clock (7:00) a.m. on the day of collection. (City Code 7-11-100: Time and Place of Pick Up)

What can you throw away in your container?

Your Draper City garbage container is only for household and yard trash (limbs cut in 2 ft. lengths). Construction materials and hazardous waste are not allowed. Please do not overfill your bins or place extra bags or items next to them. Our drivers are unable to leave their trucks to pick up spilled garbage or extra items on the side.

Where can you throw away hazardous or green waste?

Residents can dispose household hazardous waste and green waste year-round at the Trans-Jordan Landfill. Used oil can be dropped off at auto service locations such as Autozone, Firestone, Jiffy Lube and O’Reilly in Draper. Compact fluorescent light bulbs can be dropped off at the Draper Library, any Salt Lake County Library, or any Home Depot location. Learn more about local landfills and other drop-off locations.

Leaf Drop-Off: 

Residents may drop off their bagged leaves from mid-October to mid-December at the Public Works Facility (72 E. Sivogah Court – 14525 S.). Look for the sign and a large dumpster on the vacant lot west of the facility.
