Christmas Tree Recycling


Christmas Tree Collection Service

For homes with curbside collection, Christmas Trees will be collected to be chipped / composted.  Trees should be placed at the curb by 7 a.m. on Monday January 6th for collection during the week.  Crews will only collect from each neighbourhood once.  To avoid being missed, please remember to:

  • Remove plastic bags. Trees in plastic bags will not be collected
  • Remove all decorations, tinsel, garland, skirts & lights
  • Place tree on level ground, not on a snowbank, within 1 meter of the curb
  • In the event of a snow delay, leave your tree at the curb for collection the following week
  • Other yard waste may be placed at the curb for collection this week

Other Options for Christmas Tree Recycling:

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