Aquatera will start collecting real Christmas trees during curbside pickup in the City of Grande Prairie from January 9th to 27th. County of Grande Prairie residents who have curbside waste collection services can have their trees picked up during curbside collection until January 14th.
All decorations, tinsel, and lights need to be removed from the tree before they can be picked up. Trees also have to be cut down to pieces that are four feet long or shorter to fit into the curbside collection trucks. Trees need to be put one metre away from the garbage can on collection day.
Artificial trees aren’t accepted for curbside pick up. Residents have to take artificial trees to the landfill for disposal.
County residents can recycle pre-lit artificial tress through the e-waste program. Those in the County who don’t have curbside pick up can take their trees to the Clairmont Centre for Recycling and Waste Management.
