The City of Idaho Falls Sanitation Division is making holiday cleanup efforts easier for residents by offering Christmas tree disposal services.
When discarding your Christmas tree, it cannot be placed in with regular garbage due to the handling of trash at the Bonneville County Transfer Station.
There will be 15 collection sites through the city of Idaho Falls.
This service is provided until January 30th.
The disposal sites are for city resident’s use only, and not be used by commercial tree lots for disposal of trees not sold.
Residents are asked to remove all ornaments and lights prior to discarding the tree.
The trees will be chipped and turned into mulch. The mulch will then be made available to residents next spring at the city maintenance garage located at 2530 Hemmert Avenue. Residents can call the Sanitation Division to arrange a pick up of the mulch at (208) 612-8491.
