Bulky Waste Collection
In addition to curbside garbage and recycling collection, West Valley City provides monthly bulky waste collection. All bulky waste should be placed neatly on the curbside no more than one day before your scheduled pickup day. Place the bulky waste items at least five feet away from your regular waste container, or any other obstacle, before 7 a.m. on the scheduled day. If you have any questions regarding bulky waste collection or need more information about rules and regulations, please contact the Sanitation Office at 801-963-3334.
Improperly prepared bulky waste items will not be picked up!
