Take your Christmas tree to the chipper

Don't throw out your Christmas tree after the holidays come to an end, make sure it gets to Comox Valley firefighters instead.

Don’t throw out your Christmas tree after the holidays come to an end, make sure it gets to Comox Valley firefighters instead.

Bring your natural Christmas trees and a cash donation to Comox or Courtenay fire stations on Jan. 7 and 8, or the Cumberland fire station Jan. 8, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.

For a minimum $5 donation, the firefighters will pick up your tree at your home. For tree pick-up call 250-339-2432 in Comox, 250-334-2513 in Courtenay or 250-336-2531 in Cumberland.

 

“This is a great project and a win-win for all involved,” said Comox fire chief Gord Schreiner. “The Christmas trees get recycled as compost and the firefighters help out their favorite charity. Another great example of how our Valley firefighters work hard to make our communities better places to live.”
