Announcement: Our 2020 Spring Clean Up is beginning. With COVID-19 we have made some modifications to this year’s Spring Clean Up program. We are encouraging all residents to stay home and stay safe and clean up and improve your own yard and property.
See the information below for ideas on ways to clean up and beautify your yard, and for our #TakePrideTooele Day Thank You Parade!
We have cancelled all of our community and neighborhood spring clean up projects. We are optimistic that we will be able to hold at Fall Clean Up and invite our volunteers back at that time.

#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). Be sure to follow all recommended social distancing practices and current directives and orders.
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. Hazardous waste items are not acceptable for bulk waste pickup, but may be disposed at the Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day - this event has been postponed and we are optimistic that it will be held this Fall. You may contact the Health Department for more information about that event.
NEW THIS YEAR! #TakePrideTooele Day THANK YOU PARADE on May 16, 2020.

REGISTER HERE so they can visit you! Sign up by Thursday, May 14th!
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 435-843-2130.
Follow us on our Facebook Page for updates, ideas, and tutorials.
Questions? Call or email Terra Sherwood with Tooele City Parks and Recreation at 435.843.2142.
This is a great opportunity to serve! Citizens and businesses play a critical role in beautifying our community!
Thank you!Mayor Debbie Winn
