#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 5th annual Spring Clean Up in 2022! The official event will take place throughout April and May, however projects to keep our City beautiful happen year-round!
As residents, businesses, and organizations in Tooele City, we know that you care about your community, and want Tooele City to be a place where we all love to live, work, and play. 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). We also have a list of community projects where your family, group, or organization could volunteer (i.e. beautify the cemetery, parks, roadways, etc.). Check the list above and then call or email Terra Sherwood at 435.843.2142 or firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
To get rid of large items that will not fit in a trash can, Tooele City provides a monthly Bulky Waste Pickup Program. During the month of May we will double the bulky waste pick up days for residents. Hazardous waste items are not acceptable for bulky waste pickup, but may be disposed at the Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day – this event has not been announced yet this year, but we will post an update when we have more information. You may also contact the Health Department for more information about that 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 12’6″ feet is required for vehicles to pass under. On a sidewalk, a height of 8′ is necessary for individuals to walk underneath. If you have any questions, please feel free to call our Public Works office at 435-843-2130.
