Wondering what to do with that all natural Christmas tree? The City of Fort Saskatchewan has a solution.
Beginning on January 8, Fort Saskatcheawn city crews will be making their rounds to pick up the trees as part of their tree collecting program, that runs until January 19.
"People can take their trees to the curbside and then staff will come and pick them up," said Richard Gagnon, director of infrastructure management with the City. "On the second hand, people can also look at dropping their trees off at the Waste Transfer Station."
The program is for natural trees only, as they'll be chipped and used during the summer for landscaping. It'll also be for sale in the New Year.
"It's a popular program and we're more than happy to do it."
Gagnon asked that residents remove all the tinsel and decorations from the tree and leave it unwrapped.
Anyone with questions can phone Public Works at 780-992-6248.
