Cleanup Connections

Homeowners in Chubbuck can take advantage of this free service once a year. Apartment and commercial buildings are exempt. Chubbuck residents can choose either a dumpster or a roll-off container. There are more restrictions on the dumpsters because the truck that empties them must be able to compact the material. The container can haul things like tree stumps, sheet rock, furniture and mattresses.

The Sanitation Department will deliver the dumpster or container between 7:00 am and 6:00 pm on Monday, Wednesday, or Friday. If you are scheduled for a Monday or Wednesday delivery day you will have the dumpster or container for approx. 24 hours. If you schedule on Friday the dumpster or container will be picked up Monday morning.
