Due to budget and staffing shortfalls, Christmas tree pickup has been discontinued. Residents are encouraged to utilize the Laramie Landfill which accepts green waste at no charge for the compost program.
Related Note - Safe Disposal of Fireplace Ashes
The Solid Waste Division would like to take this opportunity to remind residents to be especially careful when disposing of fireplace ashes. Ashes may be left in the fireplace or stove until cool or may be cooled in a metal container until cool to the touch. Once the ashes have cooled completely, place them in a plastic bag or other container and then dispose of the ashes by placing them in the garbage. Un-contained cold ashes create large, unhealthy clouds of dust that the Solid Waste Workers have to breathe when dumping garbage containers.
