The temporary restriction on green waste deliveries has been lifted, and residential green waste will now be accepted at Timpanogos Special Service District (sewer plant), located at 5050 West 6400 North, Utah County (just off the I-15 PG Exit #275 – toward the lake). Please see below for a list of acceptable and prohibited materials.

Timpanogos Special Service District incorporates green waste with sterilized by-products to produce compost, which can be purchased from this facility. Phone 801-756-5231 for pricing. Fine compost may also be purchased at North Pointe SWSSD (landfill transfer station), 2000 West 200 South, Lindon. Call 801-225-8538 for pricing. Green waste is also accepted at the North Pointe landfill, but there is a charge of $4 for “clean” waste and $8 for green waste mixed with trash. Cedar Hills households may obtain two free “dump passes” (good for $8 each) from the City office that may be used at North Pointe. These passes, which are also good for garbage loads, expire each year on Dec. 31.
