Many cities are helping in that effort by sponsoring fall cleanups. The Clipper has already run brief articles on what several cities are doing, including one about Woods Cross activities that appears elsewhere in this issue.
Here is a rundown of other cities. Farmington, Kaysville and North Salt Lake hold spring cleanups, but nothing in the fall. Layton does not hold a fall or spring cleanup.
Among cities with fall cleanups are:
• Bountiful will hold its cleanup Oct. 5 through Oct. 9. City crews on residents’ regular garbage pickup day will also remove trash and refuse which has been properly bundled, bagged or boxed. Limbs and trees must be cut, bundled and tied in 5-foot lengths. Any bundles, bags or boxes must not exceed 50 lbs. Items such as old furniture or appliances should be placed on the drive approach or park strip, not on the street or sidewalk. Items should be placed by 7 a.m. on garbage pickup day. Trash not meeting those requirements must be taken to the landfill.
The landfill will not charge a fee to Bountiful residents during fall cleanup week or the following week. No propane tanks or tires will be accepted at the landfill.
• Clearfield holds its cleanup on two three day “weekends,” Oct. 1-3 and Oct. 8-10. Items must be dropped off at the Public Works Shop at 497 S. Main, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
• Fruit Heights will hold two cleanup days, Saturday, Oct. 3 and Saturday, Oct. 17, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. It is for green waste only, with waste to be taken to the city’s maintenance yard on Nicholls Road.
• West Bountiful will hold its cleanup Saturday, Oct. 3 through Saturday, Oct. 10. Large bins will be set up in the baseball field parking area of city park. Hours are: Saturday, Oct. 3, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday, Oct. 10, 8 a.m. until bins are full. Waste and miscellaneous cleanup materials will be accepted. Residents can also take green waste only to the Bountiful Landfill.
