Compost bins

Back yard composting bins are available to the residents of Roseville. The City utilizes a re-use program by recycling the used 90 gallon containers and converting them to composting bins. Composting bin availability is limited, but a list will be kept to deliver when bins become available.

Christmas Tree disposal

We’ll give your used Christmas tree new life by recycling it into compost or wood chips.

There are easy ways to recycle your tree

  1. The best way to dispose of your Christmas tree is to place unflocked trees in your green waste bin. Remove all branches and cut the trunk into sizes small enough to fit within the bin. Make sure the tree fits completely within the bin with the lid closed. This is the most cost effective disposal solution which reduces city costs and helps keep your utility rates low.

  2. Take unflocked trees to one of the City’s Christmas tree drop-off sites anytime after December 18, 2019 through January 12, 2020. Drop off at:

    • Maidu Park - 1550 Maidu Drive
    • Mahany Park - 1545 Pleasant Grove, Roseville (The exact location is west of the library and the sports complex, on the backside of the softball fields in the dog park parking lot.)
    • Saugstad Park - 100 Buljan Drive, Roseville

  3. As a community service and fundraiser, Roseville Boy Scouts of America troops will pick up Christmas trees throughout the city. This season’s dates are two Saturdays during the holiday season, including Saturday, December 28, 2019 and January 4, 2020.

    Simply place your tree at the curb before 9:00 a.m. Donations (in the form of cash or preferably check made out to the Boy Scouts of America) are appreciated to help fund Boy Scout Summer Camp costs. If you do make a donation, please place the check in any envelope labeled “BSA Tree Pickup” and tape it to your front door. For more information visit the Roseville Boy Scout's Christmas Tree pick up webpage.

After the dates listed above, Roseville residents can dispose of their trees at the Western Regional Landfill (3033 Fiddyment Road). For hours, rates and directions visit
