[ARCHIVED] Christmas Tree Disposal Sites

Idaho Falls, ID – The City of Idaho Falls Sanitation Division will once again make holiday cleanup efforts easier for residents by offering Christmas tree disposal services.

Discarded Christmas trees cannot be placed in with the regular garbage due to the process for handling garbage at the Bonneville County Transfer Station; however, 15 collection sites throughout the city of Idaho Falls have been designated for Christmas tree disposal.

This service is provided until Jan. 30. The designated tree disposal sites are for city resident’s use only and not to 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.

Tree Disposal Sites: 

  • Washburn & Michael (Reinhart Park)
  • Coachman & Broadway (behind car wash)
  • Fremont Avenue (by recycling bin north of Science Cente)
  • Mound & W. Elva Street (Melaleuca Field parking lot)
  • N. Water & Chestnut (NE corner)
  • W. 13th & Placer
  • 10th & Emerson
  • 17th & Emerson
  • S. Boulevard & Rogers Street
  • Bennett & Waid
  • Sunnyside Park (by Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center – SE corner)
  • South of 1st Street (west side of Meppen)
  • Sykes & Davidson
  • Ashment & 12th Street
  • Russet & Lincoln

A link to the list of disposal sites is also on the home page of the city’s website and on our City's social media page. For additional information about Christmas tree disposal or mulching, contact the Sanitation Division at (208) 612-8491.

With the exception of essential services, city offices will be closed on Monday, Dec. 24 and Tuesday, Dec. 25 in observation of the holiday. Happy holidays, Idaho Falls!
