Christmas tree disposal opens January 5 in Ottawa

"So Christmas Trees will be collected on your regular collection day, so whatever your day is - have your tree out to the curb for 7 o'clock in the morning".

In most places, people who leave trees out with tinsel on them won't have them picked up. The tree needs to be cut up to fit into the bin.

The holidays are over and you're probably already getting ready to take down your Christmas tree, if you haven't already.

If your tree is under six feet tall it can be left with your rubbish for two weeks after Christmas. SFBay regrets the error.

In Clifton Park, trees must be put out by Sunday, Jan. 13, and County Waste will collect the trees through Jan. 18, though it will make only one pass down each street. Any fake trees or other waste items can be taken to the recycling centres for recycling or safe disposal.

Please note: No flocked trees, artificial trees or plastic bags will be accepted as part of the tree recycling requirements. Residents can also bring their trees to the town transfer station for no charge.

County Waste will make a single collection sweep through the town of Ballston on January 17 for all residents, and will do a collection in Wilton on January 23 for County Waste customers only. The 350 tonnes of holiday refuse are trucked to locations in Laval and Châteauguay, where they're converted into wood chips that are then sold to firms - often pulp and paper mills - that burn and use them as energy sources instead of oil. Glenville's collection will be January 21-25 for customers only, but trees must be left out by January 20.

The municipal collections are weather-dependent.

"There were a few years, from 2004 to 2014, where it was very hard for us - we were selling trees below the cost of production, because we had a surplus", he said. "They'll end up packed in a snowbank, or they'll get iced in". In addition to the environmental cost, there are financial ones: local government estimated it costs $4 in fees and landfill taxes for each tree dumped.
