After the Holidays, Turn Your Real Tree into Compost Treecycle Your Christmas Tree at the Yard Waste Depot
After the last “Ho Ho Ho” is heard and the seasonal glitz of your real Christmas tree is removed, bring your green-needled friend to the Yard Waste Depot, next to the Landfill on Fleet Street.
Beginning December 26, residents can “Treecycle” their trees for free at the Yard Waste Depot, Monday to Saturday, from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Trees will be accepted until January 31, 2023. Natural wreaths and garland are also accepted.
Please remove all tinsel, decorations and ornaments from your natural decorations and remove any disposal bag. Any plastic bags or wrap should be placed in the garbage bin on site.
Thinking of getting a real tree next Christmas? Donate your artificial one to a local charity or second-hand store. Visit the Waste Wizard Tool to learn where you can donate your artificial tree.
Residents dropped off almost 43 tonnes of recycled trees to the depot last season – the weight of two-and-a-half Regina Transit buses – which is converted to valuable compost material. In the spring, that compost will be offered to residents at no charge. Details on the Compost Giveaway will be provided in the new year.
