Bulky Waste

Bi-Annual Curbside Bulky Waste Program

2024 Fall Curbside Bulky Waste Flyer

The curbside bulky waste program is available to all Midvale City residents who currently receive City garbage services.

We offer curbside pickup for approved items that are appropriately boxed, bundled, or bagged. This program's primary goal is to reduce pollution in our local streams and rivers while also maintaining the cleanliness of our city. It's important to note that hazardous materials such as oil, batteries, paint, tires, and other pollutants will not be collected during this curbside service.  

To determine your Curbside Bulky Waste pick up day, please refer to your regular trash pick up day, as indicated below. Additionally, make sure to adhere to the Bulky Waste Pick Up Guidelines, as failure to do so will result in your items not being collected.
