Recycle Your Live Christmas Tree!

Dec 20, 2016

Christmas trees are compostable and can be recycled back into nutrient-rich soil. Delta residents have three convenient options to recycle Christmas trees:

Curbside Collection

Live Christmas trees can be put out at the curb with your Green Can on collection day. Please cut large trees in half so they are easier for our collection crews to handle.

Tree Drop-off

Take your live Christmas tree to Enviro-Smart Organics composting facility (4295 72 Street, Ladner) for free. Please contact the facility directly at 604-946-0201 for hours of operation.

Tree Chipping

Support the Lions Clubs of Delta and attend their 2017 Christmas tree chipping events to recycle your tree. Donations are accepted and proceeds are used within the community.
