Where to drop off your Christmas tree in Quesnel

The City of Quesnel will chip and compost real trees, with drop off locations open until Jan. 11

As the festive period winds down and the dropping Christmas tree’s needles begin to clog up the vacuum, many will begin to start thinking about taking down the festive decorations.

Quesnel residents are able to drop-off their real Christmas trees at locations throughout the City before Jan. 11, 2019.

The trees are taken to the landfill and are chipped, and later composted.

Drop off locations include:

Johnston Ave Park

LeBourdais Park, by the spray park

Weldwood Park, on Walkem Street

Nadeau Street, by the mailboxes

North Fraser Drive at Foster

Lewis Drive, at the rink

Abbott Drive at Beath Street

Webster Street Park

Roddis Street, at Cariboo Field

Robertson Street Park, near trail entrance

Sugarloaf Park, at Foster Street

Ramey Park, 2882 Quesnel-Hydraulic Road

The City of Quesnel asks that all decorations are removed from the tree prior to dropping them off.
