This year The City’s Christmas Tree Recycling program will be drop-off only. We will not be collecting trees door-to-door. Please recycle your real Christmas Trees by taking them to one of our 16 designated drop-off locations between December 26 and January 31.

Turn your real Christmas tree into useful mulch instead of garbage through The City’s Christmas Tree Recycling program. By recycling trees into mulch, you can keep waste out of our landfills.

Residents may drop off at all three landfill locations.

·         East Calgary Landfill* – 17 Avenue and 68 Street S.E.

·         Shepard Landfill* – 114 Avenue and 68 Street S.E.

·         Spyhill Landfill* – 69 Street and 112 Avenue N.W.


*Please note: Until Jan. 7, City landfills are open Monday to Saturday 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and closed on Sundays. As of Jan. 9, our landfill schedule is changing. Please check to confirm what days each site will be open.
