Ready to recycle that Christmas tree?
Recycling bare trees is a free service being provided by the city garbage contractor, Emterra.
A maximum of two Christmas trees per residence will be picked up curbside and chipped for compost.
Trees will be picked up by waste collectors if they’re out by 7 a.m. on regular curbside collection days, from Jan. 3 to Jan. 14.
A special collection crew and truck will be dispatched to pick up the trees. Make sure all the ornaments and tinsel are removed.
For anyone who does not receive curbside service because of living in multi-family housing, the trees can be taken to the Parr Road Green Depot during the same time, Monday to Saturday, from Jan. 3 to Jan. 14.
Cash and Donations to the Salvation Army Food Bank will be gratefully accepted, but not required, at the scale house of the Green Depot, at 45175 Parr Road.
For curbside residents the limit is two trees per household, while for drop-off at the Green Depot, the limit is four trees.
