SALT LAKE CITY — Residents in Salt Lake City have two options for recycling their Christmas trees in January using city services.

According to a press release from Salt Lake City, residents can recycle Christmas trees by placing them in their brown curbside compost can.

The trees must be free of lights or decorations, and this option, “will help the City reduce the air quality impact of its vehicle emissions during winter inversion season.”

Starting Monday, January 11 and continuing until Friday, January 22, the city will also be picking up trees left on curbs. The release states that trees must be placed at the curb before January 11 to guarantee they will be picked up and used in compost.
