Christmas tree recycling sites now open until Jan. 31 across Winnipeg

While people slowly get out of Christmas mode, the city now has numerous sites open to drop-off Christmas trees.

The “Let’s Chip In” program has been around since 1991 and has seen 381,178 trees recycled.

Prior to dropping-off trees at the approved locations, you must remove all decorations, tinsel, stands and plastic tree bags.

The program runs from Dec. 27 to Jan. 31.
