Compost Your Real Christmas Tree

  • Cut your tree into smaller pieces to put into your green cart. Make sure the lid can close.
  • If your green cart is full, tie extra branches (no more than four feet long) together with a natural fibre string or place them in paper yard waste bags. Set tied branches or yard waste bags at least one foot from the side of your green cart.
  • You can also bring your Christmas tree to a tree drop-off from December 26 to January 31.
