Christmas Tree Recycling

NEW!  Christmas Tree Collection Service

For homes with curbside collection, Christmas trees will be collected from your neighbourhood to be chipped / composted. Trees should be placed at the curb by 7am on Monday January 8th for collection some time during the week.  Crews will only collect from each neighbourhood once.  To avoid being missed, make sure trees are out for the 7am Monday set-out deadline.

  • Remove plastic bags.
  • Remove all decorations, tinsel, garland, skirts & lights.
  • Place tree on level ground within 1 metre of curb, not on a snowbank.
  • In the case of a snow delay, leave your tree at the curb for collection the following week.  Please ensure the tree doesn’t become buried in snow.

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

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.
