Fort St. John residents are being offered a free, easy, and environmentally friendly way to get rid of their Christmas trees.
Saturday, members of the North Peace Secondary School’s Seeds of Learning group, along with the North Peace Gymnastics Club, will be collecting any trees that are placed on the curb.
The city will provide both clubs an honorarium in return for collecting the trees. Collection lasts from 10-4, and all trees should be free of all decorations, tinsel, and plastic bags.
Alternatively, residents can drop their Christmas trees off at the City’s Snow Removal Dump Site, which is located at 79th Avenue and 93rd Street, beside DGS Astro Paving.
The Christmas trees that are collected will be chipped, and then used for the summer mulching and composting programs.
