Greetings Ward 4 Residents,
Compost your real Christmas tree
Make it a green Christmas and compost your real tree this year. There are now two ways to compost your real tree: Use your green cart or drop your real tree off at one of our 12 drop-off locations between December 25 and January 31. If composting in your green cart, follow the same steps as you would for branches in your yard. All trees should be free of lights, ornaments, tinsel, tree stands and string, and should not be wrapped or bagged. Visit Calgary.ca/christmastree for more information.
Did you know?
All trees collected will be composted with the other food and yard waste collected from the Green Cart program. By composting your Christmas tree, you can keep waste out of our landfills and reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions.
