Garbage Can

Payson Landfill punch passes.

Beginning January 2018 the landfill punch pass, for residents of Payson, will no longer be issued. If you have not already picked up your pass for 2017 they are still available at the landfill and are good through the end of the year.

The City Council carefully considered this action. Among the factors considered was the amount of fraud that is taking place with duplication of the punch passes.

As a replacement for the discontinued punch pass, Payson City will have a week-long Spring & Fall cleanup where residents can take their debris to the landfill free of charge.

Residents can continue to take their green waste to the landfill at no charge.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
