Trees are chipped and used for horticultural purposes in city parks
St. John’s residents are advised that real Christmas trees may be dropped off for recycling (mulching) at one of two sites in the city.

Drop-off sites are located:
• Quidi Vidi Lake, at the west parking lot off The Boulevard, near the Royal Canadian Legion. The site opened Sunday and will continue to accept trees until 10:30 p.m. Jan. 12.
• Robin Hood Bay Waste Management Facility at 340 East White Hills Road. The site will accept tree from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. between Tuesday, Dec. 31, and Saturday, Jan. 11.
The city is reminding residents that the Bowring Park west parking lot and the St. Pat’s Ball Park are no longer being used as Christmas tree drop-off sites.
A news release notes trees must be unwrapped and free of nails, hooks and ornaments.
Real trees dropped off at the two sites are chipped and used for horticultural purposes in city parks and open spaces.
