The City's street sweeper is used for multiple purposes. The main purpose is to keep debris off the City streets such as leaves and dirt and to help make the City more attractive. It is also used to remove leaves and dirt from the drainage ditches and stormwater inlet boxes to insure the water can flow freely during times of heavy rain.
We are no longer picking up brush unless it pertains to FEMA.
Free Brush Dump Days
The City provides free brush dump days each month.
Where: South of town at Pryor Waste and Recycling (2657 S 430 Rd)
When: The first and third Saturday of each month from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. for the residents of Pryor Creek.
How: Residents must present their Municipal Utility Bill to prove residency within the City of Pryor Creek.
All tree trimming businesses are required to pay a fee at the sanitation office (Pryor Waste and Recycling) before dumping their brush.
Warning: No lumber or trash is allowed at the brush dump. Violators will be banned from future use.
It is against City Ordinance to mow or blow your grass/leaves into the streets or drainage ditches. It impedes the flow of water and if the debris makes it to the creeks or lakes, it takes the oxygen out of the water and could kill the fish. Violators will be asked to clean up and can potentially be fined. Those who have their yards professionally maintained by lawn services are responsible for making sure the lawn service disposes of the debris properly. Ultimately, the homeowner is responsible for the leaves/grass that comes from their yard.
