Idaho Falls’ Clean and Green coming in May

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI) – If you need some help with your spring cleaning, the City of Idaho Falls is gearing up.

Sanitation Division staff will be available the first four weekends in May at different locations in Idaho Falls to help collect and dispose of unwanted items. This includes household solid waste, brush, construction waste and bulk items.

“This service provides residents with the option to simply toss most of their unwanted items,” Idaho Falls Sanitation Superintendent Jordan Rechenmacher said. “We know spring cleaning can be a chore, so our sanitation staff will lend a hand to our residents by helping them sort out waste items appropriately while offering the convenience of a one-stop drop location.”

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

  • May 2-4, Parks and Recreation maintenance building on Old Butte Road near Clarence Drive
  • May 9-11, Russ Freeman Park at the glass recycling bin near Fremont Avenue and Micro Street
  • May 16-18, Mel Erickson Sunnyside Park
  • May 23-25, intersection of Bennett Avenue & Waid Street

Certain types of waste, such as metal, hazardous waste, tires, or large appliances, are required to be disposed of differently. Idaho Falls Sanitation staff are unable to accept these limited items; however, appropriate disposal locations are listed below.


The Bonneville County Transfer Station, located at 2455 Hemmert Avenue, will collect and safely dispose of household hazardous waste on May 11 and Sept 14. Accepted items include paint thinner, batteries, fertilizer, fuels, and antifreeze.   



All demolition material must be disposed of at the Bonneville County Hatch Pit.
