Time to recycle the tree? You have until Jan. 11 to leave it curbside for collection. (The Progress file)

Christmas trees collected at the curb in Chilliwack until next Friday

Make sure there’s no tinsel or ornaments left on them

Is your tree still up?

You have until Jan. 11 to recycle Christmas trees for free in Chilliwack if you’re a curbside customer, by dropping them at the curb on collection day.

The crews will only pick up bare trees. They must be cleaned off, with no tinsel, flocking or ornaments on them. They cannot be in plastic bags, or left in the green cart. For residents on the City’s Curbside Collection Program the pickup runs December 31 to January 11.

Trees must be cut into four-foot sections, weighting less than 55 lbs (25 kgs)/

The other option, for non-curbside customers, is the chance of dropping off up to four trees at the Parr Road Green Depot, where they will also be graciously accepting a food or cash donation for the Salvation Army.

That option runs until Jan. 12 at the depot at 45175 Parr Road.
