Christmas Tree Drop-Off

Christmas Tree disposal rules vary from city to city. Below is a list of various city’s Christmas Tree recycling services:


Christmas tree pickup will be done during the week of January 9th – 13th

Cedar Hills

During the first week of January, the City provides 30-yard dumpsters for Christmas trees ONLY at various locations. If the dumpster is full, please take the trees to an alternate location. Please ensure that all lights, garland, tinsel, stands, spikes, plastic, and any other type of attachments be removed from the trees. Flocked trees must not be taken to any of these locations as they are NOT recyclable. No other waste, garbage, or commercial dumping is acceptable in the bins. Mixed loads of trees and garbage cannot be recycled and are taken to the dump, which significantly increases the cost to the City. Residents are responsible to get the trees to the designated dumpsters, as curbside pickup is not available.


Christmas tree recycling drop-off will be at the Draper City Public Works Facility (72 E. Sivogah Court – 14525 S.) until Saturday, January 14th. Please no flocked trees or ornaments. Call 801-576-6517 for directions if needed.


Begins Thursday, January 12

If you want your natural Christmas tree picked up, leave it on the curb by 6:00 a.m. January 12.  Trees taller than 8′ need to be cut in half.  If it snows before your tree is picked up, please unbury it so that it can be seen.  Remember to remove tree stands.
