Lake Country residents can get rid of their Christmas tree and help the environment.

Christmas trees can be dropped off at Swalwell Park until Jan. 31.

“By dropping it off at the convenient chip-it location, your tree will then be chipped and  composted into GlenGrow,” said Rae Stewart, with the Regional District of Central Okanagan.

“This wonderful nutrient-rich soil conditioner is excellent for top dressing your lawn, ideal for use in landscaping, vegetable gardens, and even potting soil.”
