No collection on Christmas & New Year’s Day

There will be no recycling and garbage collection on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. If your collection day normally falls on Friday, put your carts out on Saturday during these two weeks.

To find your collection day, visit winnipeg.ca/collectionday, download the Recycle Coach app, or contact 311.

Christmas tree recycling

Recycle your real Christmas tree for free by taking it to one of the Let’s Chip In depots, open December 27 – January 31. Residents are reminded that trees placed at the curb or lane next to recycling or garbage carts will not be collected.

All plastic tree bags, tinsel, lights, decorations, and tree stands must be removed before leaving a tree at a depot. Residents are asked to take plastic tree bags and other garbage home with them.

Residents are welcome to help themselves to free wood chips, which will be available at all depots in early January (while quantities last).

Winnipeg residents recycled approximately 11,095 trees last season. Keeping Christmas trees out of our landfills helps reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions.

For a list of Let’s Chip In depots and operating hours, visit winnipeg.ca/letschipin. Real trees can also be recycled year-round at any 4R Winnipeg Depot. Wood chips will not be available at 4R Winnipeg Depots.
