Christmas trees will be collected at curbside beginning Thursday, January 2 and continue until January 31, 2014.  Trees need to be bare!  Please remove all ornaments, tinsel, lights and tree stands before placing trees at the curb. Trees MUST be placed on the curb, not in the street and DO NOT place trees inside your trash can. 

Your tree may be picked up on any of your regular scheduled collection days during the month of January.  The trees will be taken to the landfill for use in the composting program.  This service is provided to residents at NO additional cost.



Salt Lake County Special Service District #1 (Sanitation) provides garbage and recycling collection for the residents within your cities and communities. As of January 1, there will be some changes. The name will change to Wasatch Front Recycling District (WFWRD) and you will receive a bill in the mail rather than paying your garbage/recycling fee with your property taxes. The fee will remain the same, but you will receive a separate bill and the fee will be removed from your property tax notice.  WFWRD will be mailing the annual bill with payment options during the first semester of 2013.  If you have any questions, please call at 385-468-6325
