PAYSON CITY SOLID WASTE
801-465-5230

Garbage cans are provided by Payson City for residential and commercial use. Make sure your cans are on the street by 6:00 a.m. or 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.
