Tree Chipping

Community Tree Chipping Events

Help reduce waste this holiday season by giving your natural Christmas tree back to nature and disposing of it at a community tree-chipping event. Disposing of natural trees at these events or by placing them in Green Carts for collection, or at a recycling depot helps keep the green waste out of the landfill. 

* Important: Ensure your trees are free of any stands, decorations, tinsel or flocking to ensure they can get recycled properly.

Please support these local community groups that organize the events with your donation.
