Garbage cans are provided by Payson City for residential and commercial use. You should take your can to the street the night before your scheduled pickup. The following guidelines should be followed to minimize problems with pickup:

  • Make sure the can is facing forward with the handle facing away from the street
  • Don't place can within 8 feet of any vehicle, trailer etc.
  • If you have multiple cans, separate them by 2 to 4 feet
  • Don't overfill the can as garbage will fall out before the garbage can is dumped. You will be responsible to pick up any spilled garbage
  • Garbage placed around the can on the ground will not be picked up. The garbage truck will only pick up cans.

Contact the Solid Waste Department 801-465-5230 or the Utility Department 801-465-5200 to request a replacement can or additional can.
