Container Program

The Sanitation Department coordinates and manages the City of Pocatello Partners in Pride (PIP) Container Program, which permits residential customers the use of either a 3-yard container or a 17-yard roll-off box to remove unwanted items or to support other projects that may require greater than usual trash.

The Partners in Pride Container Program is intended for use by residential customers to help promote the beautification and upkeep of residential properties within the City of Pocatello. This program is offered free of charge to qualifying residential customers at their primary residence once per calendar year and is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Reservations can be made by calling the Sanitation Department at 208-234-6192. Reservations for the following year are accepted starting the first business day of December.
