Pocatello Partners in Pride

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 a 3-yard container or a 17-yard roll-off box to remove unwanted items or work on other projects which may require greater than usual trash. The Partners in Pride Container Program is intended for use by residential customers to help promote beautification and upkeep of residential properties within the City of Pocatello. This program is offered free of charge to qualifying residential customers 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.
