Cleaning up after the holidays? Cedar Falls Public Works offers these helpful reminders to residents!
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.
Trees will only be picked up from December 27, 2021, through January 31, 2022.
