24 Hours City news July 18, 2016 Just a friendly reminder from our Provo Sanitation Department to remove your garbage cans from the curb within 24 hours after they have been emptied. 😜 For more sanitation tips and garbage pickup information, click here. I’m all for getting the cans off the street. However I do fond it odd and slightly hypocritical that Sanitation wants the cans picked up 24 hours later. Yet they have no problem letting a dumpster sit in my driveway for over a month after requesting it be picked up multiple times?! I think if they are too busy to do stuff (i.e. their job) then citizens should be allowed to do it at what ever pace they want.
