|After Christmas, you may be wondering what to do with your Christmas tree. A real tree is all fun and games, until you have to take it down and figure out what to do with it after the holidays are over.|
All you have to do is take your Christmas tree to the Mountain View Regional Waste Commission site just north of Didsbury.
If you live closer to one of the other communities served by the Waste Commission, take your tree to the nearest one. They are being accepted AT NO CHARGE until January 31st.
All those trees will get chipped up and turned into either mulch or biomass.
Remember, Fire departments recommend you get rid of your tree sooner rather than later to avoid it becoming a fire hazard in your home.
Once they dry out, they become a huge fire hazard in your home and that's why the fire department tells folks that once you are done with the celebrations, and you are done with the tree, it's a good idea to take it outside.
How to tell? If it's not taking water and the needles are falling off and turning brown, it's time to get it outside.
If you want to keep the Christmas cheer going for a little longer, just make sure to drop your tree off before January 31st.
