Recycle your Christmas tree

Taking down the Christmas tree after the holidays can sometimes feel like a bit of a letdown, but it doesn’t have to if you dispose of it in an eco-friendly manner.

"It’s always a bit sad when the tree comes down, but you can feel good knowing it will have another life," says Assistant Waste Reduction Coordinator Rae Stewart.

"It will be chipped and then composted into Glenmore Grow. This wonderful nutrient-rich soil amendment is excellent for top dressing your lawn, ideal for use in landscaping, vegetable gardens, and even potting soil."

Stewart reminds you to remove all decorations and tinsel, as well as the plastic bags you use for transporting the tree, before dropping it off for recycling. Christmas tree drop-off locations through January 26th are:
  • At the corner of Richter and Rowcliffe
  • Glenmore Landfill (Hours: 7:30 am-4:45 pm, closed Jan.01)
  • Westside Landfill (Hours: 7:30 am-4:00 pm, closed Jan. 01)
  • Swalwell Park (located on Bottom Wood Lake Road)
  • Old Dump Site (Spring Creek Pit at the end of Princeton Rd)

For more information, call the Regional Waste Reduction Office, at 469-6250.
