There are recycling programs for your Christmas tree in both the city of North Battleford and the town of Battleford.
The City of North Battleford is once again offering to recycle Christmas trees into chips for mulch.
One free dropoff location is available at the Cty of North Battleford's Parks Shop at 11202 – 8th Ave., between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., running until Jan. 31.
The mulch that will be created is used in tree and shrub beds, and is meant to improve growth by retaining moisture and suppressing weed growth. The City is asking that all lights, string, wire, ornaments, tinsel, fake snow and bags be removed before recycling your tree, as they could damage equipment and can degrade the mulch if it is mixed in.
In Battleford, there is a drop off location as well, located at 411-27th Street West. All decorations are to be removed.
In addition, the Town of Battleford will be having a one-time curbside pickup on Friday, Jan. 11.
