Christmas Tree Recycling Program Change – DROP OFF ONLY

***This is an update to the Christmas Tree Recycling Program which was previously printed in the Ridge Review under Richard Pootmans message on pg 11.

 In an effort to find budget savings, this year’s Christmas Tree Recycling program will be drop-off only. A previous edition of this newsletter was sent to print before the decision was made, but you can still turn your real Christmas tree into useful mulch instead of garbage through The City’s Christmas Tree Recycling program. By recycling trees into mulch, you can keep waste out of our landfills and reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions. Residents can take their trees to one of 15 designated drop-off locations from December 26 – January 31.


Residents may drop off at the following landfill locations:

Spyhill Landfill* – 69 Street and 112 Avenue N.W.

East Calgary Landfill* – 17 Avenue and 68 Street S.E.

Shepard Landfill* – 114 Avenue and 68 Street S.E.


*Until Jan. 7, City landfills are open Monday to Saturday 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and closed on Sundays. As of Jan. 9, our landfill schedule is changing. Please check to confirm what days each site will be open.
