Reduce Your Waste


NEW!  Christmas Tree Collection Service

For homes with curbside collection, Christmas trees will be collected on one Saturday in January for composting. Depending on your collection zone, pick-up will be on:

Saturday January 7th - Zones C, D, E

Saturday January 14th - Zones A, B, F

  • Trees should be free of all decorations, tinsel & lights.
  • Trees in plastic bags will not be collected.
  • Place on level ground within 1 metre of curb.
  • Get them to the curb by 7am the day of collection, but no earlier than 6pm the night before
  • In the event of a snow delay, try to ensure the tree doesn’t become buried in snow and collection will take place in the following week.

Christmas trees will not be removed with regular garbage collection and the temporary Christmas tree drop-off locations are permanently closed.

For help determining your zone or to review the collection schedule check our online Zone Finder, look in your garbage calendar or download the My-waste app.

Other Options for Christmas Tree Recycling:

  • Bring Christmas trees and other holiday greenery to an EnviroDepot.  See the Depot webpage for locations and winter hours of operation.
  • Save in your backyard for spring yard material collection.  Check the online Zone Finder for your schedule.
