The Corporation of Delta is urging residents to give their Christmas trees a second life as the holiday season winds down.
Christmas trees, like other green waste material, are compostable and can be turned into nutrient-rich soil to help grow future Christmas trees.
Residents looking to dispose of their Christmas tree have three options.
Delta's Lions Clubs are once again offering tree chipping. This year, chipping events will take place in all three communities on Jan. 5 and 6. In Tsawwassen, chipping will take place in the South Delta Recreation Centre parking lot from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. In Ladner, Christmas trees will be chipped at Memorial Park from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.
Donations are accepted and the proceeds are used within the community.
Christmas trees will also be collected curbside on your yard trimmings and Green Can collection day. The municipality asks that residents cut larger trees in half to make them easier to handle.
Trees can also be taken to Enviro-smart Organics composting facility, which is located at 4295 72 St. in Ladner, for composting at no charge. Call 604-946-0201 for hours. As well, trees are also being accepted at the City of Vancouver's landfill in Ladner.
