(Garbage Collection and Recycling)
Pay your utility bill
New Glass Recycle Program
The City provides automated curbside collection of residential garbage and recyclable materials through Allied Waste (formerly known as BFI).
The City will bill each customer on a monthly basis through utility billing. Bills are mailed the last week of each month and are due by the 20th day of the following month. Monthly (container rental and waste collection) charges are as follows:
|One (1) garbage container (96 gallons)
|Additional garbage containers (each)
|Recycling containers (each)
To start or discontinue service, or to request additional cans, please call Utility Billing at 801-254-3742.
If your garbage or recyclables were not picked up, please contact Allied Waste at 801-972-4234. If your container is missing, damaged, or for any other questions, please contact South Jordan City at 801-254-3742.
Containers and Collection Services
The City provides residences with 96-gallon containers for garbage and recycling services. All containers are stamped with the City's logo and a serial number, which number is recorded by the City. Garbage containers are gray in color; recycling containers are green in color with a lid labeled "Recyclable Materials Only".
Residents are responsible for all containers assigned to their residences. The City may charge a fee to replace missing containers.
Except holidays as specified below, Allied Waste will collect garbage and recyclables on the same day each week using two different trucks. To ensure pickup, residents should place garbage and recycling containers at curbside the night before or by 7:00 a.m. on the morning of your pickup day.
Please follow this link to see the collection routes map and route descriptions to determine the correct collection day for your residence. Four holidays affect the collection schedule: New Year's Day, Independence Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. Collections for those days are delayed by one day and for all days remaining in that week. A Tuesday collection day falling on one of those holidays will be delayed to Wednesday, Wednesday collections to Thursday, and so forth until Friday's collections are completed on Saturday.
South Jordan participates in the TransJordan
. Please note that the City's contractor observes the same holiday schedule as the landfill, therefore there will be no collections on New Year's, Christmas, Independence, and Thanksgiving days. Following such holidays, collections after the holiday are delayed by one day for the remainder of that week, only when the actual holiday falls on a weekday.
The City's "New Move In Packet" contains the "Notice of Garbage Regulations" from Allied Waste. This notice includes information such as where to place the containers, how to handle certain materials, and a caution against overfilling the containers. The City provides 96-gallon containers with lids. All solid waste should be contained within the confines of this container. Allied Waste may refuse a load for unsafe conditions including overfilled containers and those containers containing disallowed materials or liquids.
Cart Delivery and Pick Up Fee
Many home owners have a need for additional solid waste containers during the growing season (for green and yard waste) from April to November each year. To accommodate residents and upon request, the City will deliver extra containers and pick them up again for an additional delivery and pick up fee of $54 per occurrence (waived for containers rented for 12 months or more) charged at time of pick-up. For each month (or part of a month) in which containers are assigned to a residence, an additional garbage container fee is also assessed.

The Special Services Waste Program involves waste that is not normally picked up with your normal garbage service. Items such as couches, appliances, large items, and new move-in boxes will be picked up on a scheduled day for a small handling fee. The fee for this pick-up will be added to your normal water bill.
The Neighborhood Dumpster Program involves the delivery of a 15-yard waste dumpster that is delivered to your neighborhood for a fee of $39.00 per day and $78.00 per weekend. This dumpster may be used for all neighborhood clean up projects you may have. There are some restrictions on its use such as tires, hazardous waste materials and appliances so please check with Public Works for these restrictions.. Click here to view pictures of the Dumpster.
