Announcement: Our 2020 Spring Clean Up is beginning. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the Tooele City Parks & Recreation Department at 435.843.2143.

#TakePrideTooele is the theme for our citywide spring clean up event!
In 2018, Tooele City Mayor Debbie Winn, staff members, and local residents participated on a committee to plan this annual event. We have come up with several ways for residents to join in the fun and take pride in our City! We are excited for the 3rd annual Spring Clean Up in 2020! The official event will take place throughout April and May, however projects to keep our City beautiful happen year-round!
There are many opportunities for everyone to participate. We are extending an invitation to our residents of all ages to clean up their own property. We also invite you to offer help in your own neighborhood to those who are not able to take care of their own property (don’t forget our seniors and those who are disabled).
To get rid of large items that will not fit in a trash can, Tooele City provides a monthly Bulk Waste Pickup Program. During the month of May we will double the bulk waste pick up days for residents. Please check back for May’s pickup schedule. Hazardous waste items are not acceptable for bulk waste pickup, but may be disposed at the Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day on May 4, 2019. You may contact the Health Department for more information about that event.
NEW THIS YEAR! #TakePrideTooele Day on May 16, 2020. If you are working on your project on May 16th between 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 noon, Mayor Winn and City Council Members want to come out and thank you for your efforts to beautify our City! If you are planning your project for May 16th, please notify us by signing up HERE so they can visit you! Sign up by Friday, May 15th at noon or join us on Facebook Live @tooelecity the day of the event.
Spring is an excellent time for home owners to check trees and ensure there are no problems for others. Trees are the ANSWER, but can also be the PROBLEM. Trees can hurt individuals, and can also contribute to vehicle damage. It is important to trim trees that hang out into the street. A height of 16 feet is required for vehicles to pass under. On a sidewalk, a height of 8 feet is necessary for individuals to walk underneath. If you have any questions, please feel free to call our Public Works office at 435-843-2132.
We have a list of community service projects listed above that can be completed by youth groups, civic organizations, church groups, businesses, families and any other individuals or groups that are willing to volunteer to help! If you would like to sign up for one of the projects on the list, please call Louise Wiedmer with Tooele City Parks and Recreation at 435.843.2143 to sign up today!
This is a great opportunity to serve! Citizens and businesses play a critical role in beautifying our community!
Thank you!Mayor Debbie Winn
