WFWRD has begun curbside Christmas tree collections
During the month of January, Wasatch Front Waste & Recycling District (WFWRD) is providing curbside Christmas tree collections. This service is provided each year and is part of its standard services.
Because Taylorsville is among the areas WFWRD serves, the district asks that residents not drop off Christmas trees at parks.
"Dropping off Christmas trees at the wrong locations causes challenges and extra expenses,” said Pam Roberts, WFWRD general manager.
Instead, residents can leave their trees curbside in front of their homes and a WFWRD driver will pick it up.
Christmas trees are collected and delivered for composting at landfills. The goal is to have all Christmas trees collected to be processed into organic mulch or compost.
Trees will be collected the day after your regular collection day during the month of January. If your tree is not collected one week, a truck will be back the following week. Keep these steps in mind beforehand:
Please remove all snow off the tree.
Trees cannot be accepted with decorations, lights, tree stands or flocking.
Do not place the tree in your garbage, recycling or green waste can.
If the tree is over 8 feet tall, please cut it into smaller sections.
Artificial trees cannot be accepted.
Yael Johnson, WFWRD customer services manager, indicates that customers are welcome to contact WFWRD offices at 385-468-6325, or online at wasatchfrontwaste.org, to confirm that their tree will be collected.
