The City of Idaho Falls will help residents with spring cleanup efforts during the annual Clean and Green Citywide Cleanup, beginning May 4.  

Personnel from the Sanitation Division will be available every weekend in May at different locations in Idaho Falls to help collect and dispose of unwanted items, including household solid waste, brush, leaves, construction waste, and bulk items. 

“This service provides residents with the option to bring most of their unwanted items to one location where those items will then be sorted and disposed of accordingly by our staff,” explains Idaho Falls Sanitation Superintendent, Jordan Rechenmacher. 

Certain types of waste, such as demolition material, metal, hazardous waste, tires, or large appliances are required to be disposed of differently and cannot be accepted by Idaho Falls Sanitation, however there are other places that do take these items. See details below. Clean and Green Citywide Cleanup


During the Clean and Green event, unwanted items, such as those listed above, will be collected between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. at the following locations:
