Spruce up your tree recycling after the holiday season

23 December 2016

As you undeck the halls after this holiday season, help support fire prevention, reduce waste and turn rubbish into resources by recycling your Christmas tree. Recycling your Christmas tree helps return it to nature and create new resources – but make sure you remove all decorations and tinsel before doing so.

The City of Richmond offers the following tree recycling options:

  • Residents with curbside Green Cart collection may cut up, bundle their tree and place it at the curbside on their regular collection day. The tree should be cut and bundled to a maximum size of three feet by two feet and four inches in diameter.
  • The City’s Recycling Depot, located at 5555 Lynas Lane, accepts trees between 9:00 a.m. and 6:15 p.m. from Wednesday to Sunday. Please note the depot is closed on statutory holidays.
  • Drop off at Ecowaste Industries, which is located at 15111 Williams Road. For hours of operation, call 604-277-1410 or visit
  • You can also keep the holiday spirit going by bringing your tree as well as a donation to the Richmond Firefighters Association’s annual Christmas tree chipping event. Firefighters will be accepting trees from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 7 and Sunday, January 8, 2017, at Garry Point Park parking lot on the corner of Moncton Street and 7th Avenue.
