Leduc Christmas tree pickup scheduled for week of Jan. 11

–Ensure collection by following our helpful guidelines

  • Jan. 5, 2016 6:00 a.m.

The City of Leduc’s annual Christmas tree pickup will take place on residents’ regular collection day during the week of Jan. 11.

“This service makes tree cleanup after the holidays very easy,” said Kerra Chomlak, environmental sustainability co-ordinator with the City of Leduc. “Taking a few easy steps to prepare your tree means it will be picked up.”

Christmas tree pickup will occur between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. using different trucks than those collecting blue bags and carts. Artificial trees will not be picked up.

Take the following steps to ensure your tree gets picked up:

• Take off all tinsel and ornaments.

• Cut the tree in lengths no longer than 1.2 metres, or four feet.

• Place the loose tree pieces at the curb at least one metre away from your blue bags and organics cart. Do not put the pieces in plastic bags.

All collected trees are added to the City’s organics program and turned into nutrient rich compost.

Residents who want to dispose of their natural trees earlier than the week of Jan. 11 can drop the trees off at the Yard Waste Transfer Station at 3719 – 48 Ave., north of the Leduc Recreation Centre. The drop-off area is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
