Until January 31, the City of North Battleford will be accepting live Christmas trees at the Parks Shop at 11202 8th Avenue. To recycle the tree at no cost, residents just need to follow the “Trees” sign at the Shop.
However, it is extremely important to remove all decorations from the tree before dropping it off: ornaments, lights, string, wire, tinsel, fake snow and bags.
Staff at the Parks Shop will eventually chip the trees into mulch and use it in City owned tree and shrub beds in the spring. This improves the growth of the plants by retaining moisture and at the same time suppresses the growth of weed. If decorations are not removed from the tree prior to drop-off, the material can damage the mulching equipment and become mixed in the mulch, which degrades its usefulness.
