Tree drop-off available

Lake Country residents can dispose of their Christmas tree in an eco-friendly manner.

“Your tree can have another life after the holidays,” said Rae Stewart, Regional District of Central Okanagan waste reduction facilitator.

“By dropping it off at any one of the convenient chip-it locations, your tree will then be chipped and  composted into GlenGrow. This wonderful nutrient-rich soil conditioner is excellent for top dressing your lawn, ideal for use in landscaping, vegetable gardens, and even potting soil.”

Lake Country residents can leave their trees at the Glenmore landfill and Jack Seaton Park until Jan. 31.

“Before dropping your tree off for recycling, please remove all decorations and tinsel, as well as any  plastic bags or other materials used for transporting the tree,” said Stewart.

For more information on recycling, go to regionaldistrict.com/recycle.
