Natural Christmas Tree Collection Starts January 9

The City of Edmonton will start collecting natural Christmas trees on January 9, 2015. Trees will be picked up for recycling within three weeks of this date, but not necessarily on residents’ scheduled waste collection days.

Residents are asked to:
  • Set natural Christmas trees out for collection by 7 a.m. on Friday, January 9
  • Place their un-bagged tree on its side next to their garbage bags
  • Cut extra-large trees into two-metre (six-foot) lengths
  • Remove ornaments, tinsel, garlands, nails, screws and tree stands, so that they are acceptable for composting 
Apartment and condo residents should take their natural Christmas trees to a Recycling Depot or to one of the City’s three Eco Stations free of charge by January 30. Christmas trees should NOT be placed in, or near, apartment garbage or recycling bins.
