Reminder - Christmas Tree Recycling Depots Now Open

Released: December 27, 2015 at 9 a.m.

Winnipeg, MB - Residents are reminded that they can recycle their real Christmas trees for free by taking them to one of the 11 Let's Chip In Depots, open until January 20, 2016.

All plastic tree bags, tinsel, decorations, and tree stands must be removed before leaving a tree at a depot.

Residents are welcome to help themselves to free wood chips, which will be available at all depots in early January (while quantities last). Please remember to bring your own container.

Residents are reminded that trees placed at the curb next to recycling or garbage carts will not be collected.

Winnipeg residents recycled 11,000 trees last season. Keeping Christmas trees out of our landfills means that the trees will continue to be a valuable resource.
