The familiar chill of fall is creeping into the air. With it comes the promise of beautiful colors, cozy nights curled up in a warm house…and lots of yard work! We may not be able to help you get rid of yard work altogether, but there are several ways we can help make it easier for you.

  • Please note: there are no more free leaf bags at the city offices, and we won't be receiving any more this year. However, residents are welcome to use their own bags to gather leaves and then drop them off in designated trailers at Bywater Park (3300 East 7420 South) until Nov. 30. The sanitation district will empty the trailers daily. Remember, don’t put garbage, yard waste or other items into the leaf bag dumpsters, and please don’t put leaves into recycle cans.
  • Fee waivers—Wasatch Front Waste and Recycling offers fee waivers for pickup truck or trailer loads of bulk waste and green waste. The loads must originate from the user’s personal residence, and cannot contain hazardous waste such as tires, batteries and chemicals. Waste will be accepted at the Salt Lake Valley Landfill, 6030 W. California Avenue, Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fee vouchers are available at the Cottonwood Heights city offices.
  • Trailer Rentals—Wasatch Front Waste rents trailers to residents who need to remove a large amount of household bulk or green waste. The cost to rent a trailer for four days is $30 for a green waste trailer and prices start at $125 for household garbage and bulk waste. Bulk waste loads over two tons will be invoiced at an additional $30 per ton up to an allowable load of four tons. Information on how to reserve a trailer is available at or by calling 385-468-6325.
