It's that time of the year when Utahns decide that it won't snow anymore, the garage has gotten cluttered and the yard is looking shabby.

They get out the clippers, roll up their sleeves and start at it. Somewhere between clipping the hedges and moving the old refrigerator, they wonder if they should count on their local government to pick up all this junk or whether they need to take a trip to the dump.For residents in Salt Lake and Davis counties, the Deseret News has some answers. The following includes lists of all cities in the two counties and whether they provide cleanup service. It also includes landfill fees and hours and restrictions on burning.
