West Jordan Dumpster Days

The City of West Jordan offers three free dumpster drop-off programs throughout the year. Green waste and general waste dumpsters will be available in the Public Works Maintenance yard (7960 South 4000 West) between 7 AM and 3 PM. Residents can dump green waste that will be turned into mulch, as long as they keep it separate from other trash.

  • May 4, 2024 | 7 AM – 3 PM, Public Works Facility
  • June 29, 2024 | 7 AM – 3 PM, Public Works Facility
  • October 26, 2024 | 7 AM – 3 PM, Public Works Facility

Staff will be onsite to assist with traffic direction and dumping instructions. Participants must bring proof of residency or city employment. (driver’s license, utility bill, or city ID badge)

Most non-hazardous waste or debris is permitted. Acceptable items include: 

  • Building materials 
  • Household items 
  • Limited appliances (Freon must be removed prior to disposal) 
  • Furniture 
  • Yard waste (tree limbs, shrubbery, grass clippings) 

Here’s a helpful guide with more information on what is accepted.

Dumpster Rental

Reserving a dumpster for regular or green waste disposal is available to residents with an active West Jordan garbage utility account within the city limits. Dumpster reservations are not available for commercial use.

Reservations for the calendar year can be made starting on the first working day of that year. Each resident is allowed one reservation at a time, with the option to place a second reservation once the first reservation date has passed.

Dumpsters (8′ wide x 25′ long x 5′ tall) can be reserved year-round. From November 1st to March 31st, dumpsters must be placed entirely on private property without obstructing sidewalks or roadways for potential snow removal.

Green Waste

The city’s green waste program runs the FIRST full week in April through the LAST full week in November.

Beginning in spring of 2024, you may observe a shift in how your green waste is collected. Going forward, both trash and green waste will be collected by the same truck. This adjustment not only streamlines operations but also reduces the number of vehicles traversing the streets, curtailing carbon emissions.

Additionally, the inclusion of grass clippings and leaves alongside regular trash provides additional benefits. These organic materials readily decompose, facilitating the breakdown of other waste components, especially those that are biodegradable, at the garbage dump.

Request an additional green waste can by completing this form.
