Where Winnipeggers can recycle their Christmas trees

Christmas has come and gone, which means many people’s real trees are dropping needles and starting to die.

The City of Winnipeg says not to throw your tree out but bring it to one of their ten tree recycling depots, instead.

Winnipeggers are asked to bring their unbagged trees, free of any decorations, to depots from December 27 to January 31.
