Comox, Courtenay and Cumberland fire departments will conduct a Christmas tree recycling fundraiser after the holidays.

Bring your natural Christmas trees and a cash donation to Comox or Courtenay fire stations on Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 8 and 9 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. or the Cumberland fire station Sunday, Jan. 9 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

For a minimum of a $50 donation the firefighters will pick up your tree at your home. For tree pickup, call 250-339-2432 in Comox, 250-334-2513 in Courtenay or 250-336-2531 in Cumberland.

Comox fire chief Gord Schreiner says, “This is a great project and a win-win for all involved.

“The Christmas trees get recycled and the firefighters help out their favourite charity.”
