Christmas tree disposal

It’s that time of year again when Christmas trees are sent to the big wood chipper in the sky – it also coincides with the Christmas Tree Chipping for Charity put on by local firefighters helping out the Burn Fund.

From 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., on Jan. 5-6, residents in the Central Okanagan can bring their old Christmas trees to different locations and have them disposed of, all while helping out a good cause.

The cost is by donation and all proceeds will directly to the B.C. Firefighters Burn Fund.

In Kelowna, trees can be dropped off at Station #1 – 2255 Enterprise Way or at Station #4 – 619 Dehart Road.

In West Kelowna, trees can be dropped off at Home Depot – 3550 Carrington Road.

In the South Okanagan, the Penticton Fire Fighters Local 1399 will be collecting trees at Fire Hall #2 – 285 Dawson Ave until Jan. 31.

In the North Okanagan, residents can stop by Fire Station #1 in Vernon, located at 3401 30th Street.
