Here is all the information Chilliwackians need to properly recycle their Christmas trees.

Tree recycling at the curb is a free service for any residents who receive curbside garbage collection from City of Chilliwack contractor, Emterra.

A maximum of two Christmas trees per household can be left got pick up.They will be chipped later for compost.

Bare trees will be picked up by waste collectors if they’re at the curb by 7 a.m. on regular curbside collection days from January 2 to January 14.

A special collection crew and truck will be dispatched by Emterra to pick up the trees.

For anyone who does not receive curbside waste collection because of living in multi-family housing, the trees can be taken to the Parr Road Green Depot during the same timeframe, from Monday to Saturday, from January 2  to January 14 (Monday – Saturday).

Cash and Donations to the Salvation Army Food Bank will be gratefully accepted by staff at the scale house of the Green Depot, which is at 45175 Parr Road.

“Thank you to BioCentral, the operators of the Parr Road Green Depot, for providing this service to our community,” according to the Greenheart News.

Trees that have ornaments, flocking, or tinsel still on them will not be picked up, nor will any trees in bags be collected.

For curbside residents the limit is two trees per household, while for drop-off at the Green Depot, the limit is four trees per family.
