Holiday Waste Collection

Please be advised that there will be NO changes to Waste Collection Services this holiday season, as Christmas Day (December 25, 2016) and New Year's Day (January 1, 2017) both fall on Sundays this year.

Calendar showing that there will be no changes to the regular waste collection schedule over the holiday season.

Check your collection schedule by searching by your address.

Getting Rid of Your Christmas Tree

Christmas trees can be:

  • placed in your organics cart (tree must be cut up into pieces no bigger than 3ft long and bundled together),
  • brought to a tree chipping event provided by local organizations, or
  • brought to the landfill or transfer station

Remove all tinsel, lights, decorations, tree stands and plastic bags from Christmas trees prior to disposal.
