Chip your Christmas Tree, don’t chuck it

December 18, 2013 - 2:55 PM

When you take down your Christmas tree after the holidays, keep in mind you can dispose of it in an  eco-friendly manner.
Waste Reduction Facilitator Rae Stewart says, “Your tree can have another life after the holidays. By dropping it off at any one of the convenient Chip It locations, your tree will then be chipped and  composted into GlenGrow. This nutrient-rich soil conditioner is perfect for top dressing your lawn, landscaping, mixing in your vegetable garden, or using as potting soil. It’s available at the Glenmore landfill and many landscape supply centers throughout the spring and summer.”

Before dropping your tree off for recycling, please remove all decorations and tinsel, as well as any  plastic bags or other materials used for transporting the tree.

Christmas tree drop-off locations December 26th through January 31st are:

Kelowna and Area:
At the corner of Richter and Rowcliffe
Glenmore Landfill (Glenmore Road)
Open Monday-Sunday 7:30 am – 4:45 pm.  Closed Dec 25th, 26th and Jan 1st
