Keep it green this holiday season and recycle your Christmas tree
It’s that time of year again. The holidays have come and gone and now it’s time to figure out what to do with the Christmas tree!
Vancouver residents have three green options this month for recycling their live, cut Christmas trees. Prepare trees for recycling by removing all tinsel and decorations — this is important as these materials will contaminate the compost.
In partnership with the Lion’s Club, residents are invited to bring their Christmas trees to one of the four locations listed below on Saturday, January 9 and Sunday, January 10 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.

1.   Kerrisdale Community Ice Rink parking lot
5670 E Blvd, north of 41st Ave
2.   Sunset Beach upper parking lot
Beach Ave and Broughton St
3.   Kitsilano Beach parking lot
Cornwall Ave and Arbutus St
4.   Rona Home & Garden, Grandview store
2727 E 12th Ave, overflow parking lot north of Grandview Highway, south of 12th Avenue

Donations of cash and non-perishable food items will also be accepted and will be distributed to local charities.
Residential Collection
Christmas trees will be collected city-wide the weekend of January 16-17. To ensure your tree is collected, please set it out before 7:00 am on Saturday, January 16. Trees should be set out on their own and laid on their sides. Do not put your tree inside your Green Bin or bag or bundle it.
Free Drop-off at Landfill or Transfer Station
Christmas trees can be dropped off until January 31 — at no charge — to the Vancouver South Transfer Station or Vancouver Landfill.
