Christmas Tree Drop-off Sites Open Boxing Day

Ten Locations

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO  ~~~~~   December 25, 2020  (LSN)  The City will once again recycle natural trees from Dec. 26 - Jan. 12, grinding the trees into wood chips to be added to the compost pile at the City’s Solid Waste & Recycling Facility. Compost is given away each spring to beautify residents' lawns and flower gardens.

“Natural Christmas trees are recyclable,” said Jason Sherband, Manager of the City’s Solid Waste & Recycling Services Section. “The City’s nine Tree Drop-off Sites open on Boxing Day. Recycling the tree has become an eco-friendly holiday tradition for many.”

North drop-off locations:

  • Brent Park (Balsam Street at Margaret Street)
  • County Park Tennis Courts (County Boulevard)
  • Grandview Arena (Madeline Street in between Grandview Arena and Westminster United Church – not in arena parking lot)
  • John Jumbo Recreation Centre (Toivo Street)
  • Strathcona Golf Course

South drop-off locations:

  • Delaney Arena (Legion Track Drive)
  • Kinsmen Northwood Centre (609 N James Street)
  • Westfort Playing Field (Off Neebing Avenue)
  • West Thunder Community Centre (915 S Edward Street)

Remove all ornaments and tinsel from trees before bringing them to a Drop-off Site. If a plastic bag is used to transport the tree to the recycling site, it must be removed.

Trees cannot be left at recycling depots or put out for curbside collection.

For more information, call the City’s Dispatch at 625-2195 or visit thunderbay.ca/christmas
