The City of Edmonton has been collecting and recycling Christmas trees set out for curbside collection and at recycling depots since 1990.
Approximately 10,779 trees (115.15 tonnes) were collected for recycling in January 2017. The trees are chipped and composted at the Edmonton Waste Management Centre.
The Reuse Centre accepts artificial trees, free of charge, providing they are in a box including all parts. They will be made available to organizations and individuals for reuse.
Artificial trees that are not fit for reuse are not recyclable and should be set out with your garbage on your regular collection day.
