KELOWNA – Disposing of your real Christmas tree certainly isn’t the best part of the holidays, but the Regional District of the Central Okanagan has several locations in Kelowna and West Kelowna offering free tree chipping this year.

From Dec. 26 until Jan. 31, drop off spots will be available at the Glenmore Landfill as well as the Westside Residential Waste Disposal and Recycling Centre in West Kelowna.

The parking lot at Jack Seaton Park in Lake Country will also be set up to take old trees.

In Peachland, trees can be dropped off at the Peachland Compost Site on Princeton Avenue.

For a complete list of addresses and regulations, visit the Regional District website.
