Trees chipped

Greater Vernon residents can take their Christmas trees to the drop-off site next to St. John Ambulance

There is an environmentally friendly way to get rid of your Christmas tree.

Residents of Vernon, Coldstream, and the BX are invited to take their Christmas trees to the drop-off site located at 47th Avenue and 20th Street, in the vacant lot next to St. John’s Ambulance, until Jan. 18.

No plastic bags or other debris are to be left at the site and the trees will be chipped.

This no-cost service is provided to residents by the City of Vernon, District of Coldstream and the Regional District of North Okanagan.

Christmas trees can also be taken to regional landfills free of charge in January.

Vernon residents are advised that Christmas trees will not be picked up with their residential refuse.
