The City of Edmonton has been collecting and recycling Christmas trees set out for curbside collection and at recycling depots since 1990.
8,570 trees, weighing more than 95 tonnes, were collected in January 2020 for composting.
When getting rid of your artificial tree, consider donating to a local charity or second-hand store.
Artificial trees that are not fit for reuse are not recyclable and should be set out with your garbage on your regular collection day. Please make sure the trees are packaged for collection within the Waste Services regulations. They need to be boxed, bagged or bundled and be no heavier than 20 kilograms and no longer than 1.2 metres.
