Those looking to recycle their Christmas trees can do so at the firehalls in Comox and Courtenay next weekend (Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 8 and Jan. 9) from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Cumberland firehall will also accept trees between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 9.

Firefighters are also offering a special home pickup of trees for a $5 donation. Call the firehall in your area to arrange pickup. Donations support local charities.

Christmas trees cut in half with each half no longer than three feet will also be picked up on regular yard waste pick-up days in Courtenay and Comox. Curbside pickup of trees in Royston is Wednesday, Jan. 6.

Trees will also be accepted free of charge at the CVRD waste management centre at 2400 Pidgeon Lake Rd. in Cumberland. The centre is open seven days a week from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. It will close at noon on Dec. 31 and will remain closed New Year’s Day.

Another option is the annual Christmas Tree Disposal Day at the Black Creek Community Centre, Monday, Jan. 3 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Denny Featherstone of Skyline Tree Service will have a tree chipper on site.

This event is by donation to the Black Creek Community Association. Complimentary hot chocolate and cookies will be available.

For more information, call the BCCA office at 250-337-5190.

Regardless of disposal method, residents are asked to first remove tinsel and decorations.
