Once again, the City of North Battleford will be recycling Christmas trees into chips for mulch. The mulch is used in tree and shrub beds, improving growth by retaining moisture and suppressing weed growth.
All lights, string, wire, ornaments, tinsel, and fake snow must be removed before dropping off your tree. Materials left on trees can damage City equipment and become mixed in the mulch, degrading its usefulness.
There are two free drop-off locations available. Residents can drop off their tree at the City of North Battleford Parks Shop, located at 11202 – 8th Avenue. This drop-off location is open from Monday to Friday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, until Friday, January 15th, 2021.
Or residents can drop-off their tree at the Waste Management Facility without fees until Friday, January 22nd, 2021. Regular fees for Christmas trees will be applied after January 22nd. The Waste Management Facility is open Monday to Saturday, 8:00 am to 6:00 pm, with no admittance past 5:45 pm.
Use this free tool online at the link above or install it on your smartphone. View your waste pickup schedule, set up reminders – never miss a waste pickup again. Or use it to determine what is trash or recycling and use it to receive important information about events like the household hazardous waste day or the fall compost collection program.
