Christmas Trees

The County of Wellington provides annual natural Christmas tree collection. We offer three ways to recycle, but in all cases, please prepare your tree properly for recycling. Trees are taken to All Treat Farms in Arthur and ground into mulch.

Tree Preparation

Remove all decorations, wire, plastic bags, stands and lights. Food bank donations are gratefully accepted by the Kinsmen Club and by County waste facilities when you recycle your tree.

Collection Options:

By Curbside Collection
