Cleaning up after the holidays? Cedar Falls Public Works offers these helpful reminders to residents!

Tree Disposal

Clean Trees: Do not have ornaments, tinsel, flocking, or attached tree stands. These will be considered as yard waste. They may be brought to the Transfer Station on Mondays for a $0.75 disposal fee or you may cut to 4ft lengths and attach a Cedar Falls Christmas tree tag to a portion of the tree for $1.25.  Place the tree at the curb and call 273-8629 for a Monday pickup. All plastic bags must be removed.

Unclean Trees: Have flocked limbs or are heavily tinseled. These will be considered as garbage. These trees may be brought to the Transfer Station Tuesday through Friday for a $0.75 disposal fee or you may cut to 4ft lengths and attach a Cedar Falls Christmas tree tag to a portion of the tree for $1.25 and place at the curb on your normal garbage day pickup.
