SALT LAKE CITY - Cities across Utah have different options for disposing of or recycling your Christmas tree.

Some cities offer curbside pickup. Other cities provide locations for dropping off the tree.

All cities do not want trees that are still decorated.

Salt Lake City

Salt Lake City offers its residents curbside pickup of trees. The trees should be placed in the brown compost can. The city encourages its residents to cut up their Christmas trees into 4-foot pieces or smaller.

The city does not accept flocked trees. A tree that has an adhesive spray on it, such as fake snow, is a flocked tree.

Salt Lake City residents can also put their trees on the curb for collection. The window for curbside collection is January 6 -24, 2020.


Draper residents can drop off their Christmas trees from December 26 through January 15 at the Public Works Facility (72 E Sivogah Court - 14525 S). Christmas trees can also be brought to or at the Longbranch Trailhead, at the intersection of Longbranch Drive (1690 E) or Deer Ridge Road (15090 S).

Like Salt Lake City, the city of Draper does not accept flocked trees.

The Christmas tree drop-off locations include, Aquatic Center/Skate Park, Bridgerland Park, Logan Regional Hospital, Hillcrest Elementary School, Pioneer Park, the Recreation Center at 300 S 100 W, and the Logan Landfill Green Waste Facility.
