The Wasatch Front Waste and Recycling District is offering free Christmas tree curbside pickup after the holidays.

The free service is available Jan. 5 to Jan. 30 on residents’ normal garbage day.
Wasatch Front Waste and Recycling District Tree Disposal Tips:
Do not put trees in garbage or recycle can.
Trees must be bare of tinsel, flocking, ornaments, stands and lights.
Salt Lake City will start collecting trees curbside Jan. 12.
Trees must be free of lights and decorations.
Salt Lake City is offering two options for residents to recycle trees through the City’s composting program.
In addition to curbside pickup, residents can place discarded holiday trees in a curbside compost bin, also known as the brown bin, for regular weekly pickup.
In the case of dramatic snow fall, adjustments to the curbside holiday tree collection schedule may be required.
