Here’s When & How to get rid of your Christmas Tree

Here’s When & How to get rid of your Christmas Tree
@Wikipedia

Each year, Christmas trees are turned to mulch to help feed the next generation.

You Christmas tree has done its job by making you home a bit merrier during the Holidays, but now it’s time to clean it up and move on to the next thing! But if you put up a real tree this Holiday season, its journey won’t be over until it’s been turned to mulch by the city and reused as compost for future trees!

Here is WHEN, WHERE and HOW to prepare your tree for collection and have it taken care of by the city’s waste collection services. 

 

First, you need to make sure your tree is ready:

  • Remove all ornaments, lights, tinsel and garlands from the tree or they’ll get caught in the chipper;
  • Do not pack the tree in a plastic bag;
  • Do not block the sidewalk;
  • Do not plant the tree in a snowbank. This makes it hard to distinguish from live trees!
