Recycle Your Christmas Tree January 2, 2020

Once again, the City of North Battleford will be recycling Christmas trees into chips for mulch. The mulch is used in tree and shrub beds, improving growth by retaining moisture and suppressing weed growth.

There is one FREE drop off location available.

  • City of North Battleford Parks Shop at 11202 – 8th Avenue
    (during regular business hours 7:00 am – 4:00 pm)

This service will run from Friday, January 3rd to Friday, January 31st, 2020. All lights, string, wire, ornaments, tinsel, and fake snow must be removed before dropping off your tree. Materials left on trees can damage City equipment and become mixed in the mulch, which degrades its usefulness.
