About Garbage & Recycling Service

The City of Orem is partnered with Waste Management to provide exceptional garbage and recycling service. Garbage is picked up once a week on your assigned pick-up day. Recycling is picked up every other week but on the same day as your garbage. Click here to view the recycling schedule.

When you sign up for a utility account with the city, you will receive both a garbage and recycling bin for one low monthly price.

* The green waste bin can be used for both organic waste as well as regular trash.

The City offers curbside green waste collection. Both yard waste and regular garbage are allowed in these cans. The can will be charged and emptied year round.

If you have questions or want to sign up, call/text us at (801) 229-7000. 

When you have more garbage or green waste than will fit in your can, you may take that trash to the landfill on your own. The North Pointe Landfill is located at 2000 W 200 S, in Lindon. They are open 7:00 am to 6:00 pm M-F and 8:00 am to 3:00 pm on Saturday. 

Orem is a ‘participating’ city so as you can see on the attached fee schedule, you will receive a reduced rate on your load.  Please be sure to take proof that you are an Orem resident in the form of an ID with your Orem address or your Orem City Utility bill.

There is no charge for loads containing only green waste as long as your load is covered and you provide proof of Orem residency.

Check out North Pointe’s fees on their website.

The City of Orem runs an annual Christmas Tree Drop-Off Program where citizens can drop real Christmas trees at various locations for disposal.
