Reminder – Let’s Chip In depots now open

Released: December 27, 2017 at 9:49 a.m.

Winnipeg, MB – Residents are reminded that they can recycle their real Christmas trees for free by taking them to a Let's Chip In Depot, open until January 31, 2018. Trees placed at the curb next to recycling or garbage carts will not be collected.

All plastic tree bags, tinsel, lights, 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.

Winnipeg residents recycled 9,414 trees last season. Keeping Christmas trees out of our landfills helps reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions.
