    I tried to dispose of some items at Rock Canyon Park today at 530p (4/20) and no dumpsters. It was a waste of my time. Are the dumpsters collected earlier then the listed 6p?

  5. Nancy

    We try to take advantage of the annual hazardous waste day in Provo each spring. How do we dispose of things like smoke alarms (radioactive materials) during the rest of the year? Is there a place we can take them?

  7. I didn’t know that the city provided dumpsters for public use! There have been so many days when I put off the cleaning because I knew there was no room left in my garbage. Maybe I should just rent a dumpster like Matilde and John suggest.
