There are a number of tree chipping options for residents of the Comox Strathcona Waste Management (CSWM) region this year.

You can drop off your tree at the fire halls in Comox (10 a.m. – 4 p.m.) and Courtenay (8 a.m. – 4 p.m.) on Saturday, Jan. 5 and Sunday, Jan. 6. In addition, a one-day tree chipping event will be held in Cumberland at the fire hall on Sunday, Jan. 6 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Tree chipping events are by donation with proceeds going to support local charities.

Christmas trees that are cut in half with each half no longer than three feet in length will also be picked up on regular yard waste pick up days in Courtenay and Comox. Curbside pickup of Christmas trees for Royston residents is Thursday, January 3, 2013.

You can also take your Christmas tree to the CSWM’s waste management centres in the Comox Valley at 2400 Pidgeon Lake Road in Cumberland.

The waste management centre is open seven days a week from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The waste management centre will close at 4 p.m. on December 31 and will remain closed on New Year’s Day.

No matter what disposal method you choose, be sure to remove all of the tinsel and decorations first.

The Comox Strathcona Waste Management (CSWM) service is a function of the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) and is responsible for two regional waste management centres that serve the Comox Valley and Campbell River, as well as a range of transfer stations and smaller waste-handling and recycling facilities for the electoral areas of the CVRD and the Strathcona Regional District. The CSWM service manages over 100,000 tonnes of waste and recycled material and oversees a number of diversion and education programs.
