This year, the City’s Christmas tree recycling program will be drop-off only.
As a cost-saving measure, there will be no door-to-door collection service this year. Calgarians will have to drop their trees to one of the 16 tree drop off locations across the city.

- 11 free things to do this holiday season
“If everyone helps by meeting us half way, we’ll still be able to turn the trees into mulch while also saving taxpayers quite a bit of money,” says Leader of Program Management with Waste & Recycling Services, Sharon Howland.
