Tree chipping events have already begun, but there will be more for the weekend of 7 & 8th, 2012. (http://vancouver.ca/engsvcs/solidwaste/christmasTree.htm).
Other Disposal Options
If you receive City yard trimmings collection service, you may set out your live cut Christmas tree on your regular collection day. Christmas trees will be collected by City crews until January 31.
Trees should be set out on their own 1 metre clear of your cart(s) and laid on their sides.
Do not place the tree inside your cart. Do not bag or bundle the tree.
Please remember to remove all decorations and tinsel.
Alternatively, you may drop off your tree at the Vancouver South Transfer Station or the Vancouver Landfill at no charge up to and including January 31.
