Lots of options for Christmas tree disposal
Whether you have a Charlie Brown shrub or a majestic Noble Fir, there are plenty of options to dispose of your tree know that Christmas has passed. Like other green waste material, Christmas trees are compostable and can be turned back into nutrient-rich soil to help grow future Christmas trees.
The Tsawwassen Boundary Bay Lions will once again be operating their Christmas tree chipping fundraiser. Last year, the local Lions chipped more than 2,000 trees while collecting $8,500 for local charity projects.
This year, you can bring your dried-out pine to one of three locations in Tsawwassen, Ladner, or North Delta to have it chipped by donation from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 5 and Sunday, Jan. 6.
Drop-off sites include the South Delta Recreation Centre (1720 56th Street), Memorial Park (5010 47th Avenue), Sungod Recreation Centre (7825 112th Street).
Christmas trees can also be put out at the curb with yard trimmings on Green Can collection day. Please cut large trees in half so they are easier for collection crews to handle. For more information, contact Delta's Engineering Department at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (604) 946-3260.
For no-charge composting, Christmas trees can be dropped off at Enviro-smart Organics in Ladner (4295 72 Street) from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The City of Vancouver Landfill also accepts Christmas trees at their composting facility at 5400 72 Street in Delta. Please visit vancouver.ca/landfill for hours of operation and disposal rates.
