    How do you get rid of all these leaves in Northern Utah?

    leavesEver wonder where the term “Fall” comes from? It literally comes from the Middle English expressions “fall of the leaf”.  While the turning of the leaves in Northern Utah is spectacular, it only means one thing …. Leaves will fall. And generally all in your yard. What do you do with all these leaves and branches you’ll be raking up soon?

    Open Burning is an option, but you do need a permit in order to burn your yard waste. However, there are other ways to dispose of all your leaves, grass clippings and other yard waste.

    Below are just a few disposal sites in the area:

    Tree Trimming in North Ogden

    The Public Works Department and City Forester would like to draw your attention to the trees in your yard that overhang the curb and gutter. They ask you trim those to a minimum height of nine feet (9’) above the curb and gutter and eliminate overhang onto the roadway.

    Beginning in October, North Ogden City employees will be around the city trimming those trees that have not been trimmed. The trimming done by the City will be for functionality and may not be esthetically pleasing.

    Residents are asked to comply with the requested trimmings for the best results.

    The green waste facility is open for the disposal of your trimmings on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3pm to 6pm and Saturdays 9am to 2pm. Pick up a punch pass at the City office during business hours.
