Christmas is all but a distant memory – so Greater Victoria Lions Clubs say this is the perfect weekend to dispose of your tree.
Five makeshift tree recycling depots will be set up around the region for the 27th annual Chip-In for the Kids fundraiser for Easter Seals.
Lions Club members and volunteers from Davey Tree Services will be accepting donations to chip your tree.
Locations are Tillicum Shopping Centre, Broadmead Village, University Heights, Safeway (Fort Street and Foul Bay Road) and Westshore Town Centre. The events run 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Jan. 4 and 5.
On Saturday, for a minimum $10 donation, volunteers will come to your house to pick up your tree. Call 250-370-0518 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Knight of Columbus is also holding Christmas tree recycling by donation at St. Joseph The Worker, 753 Burnside Rd., on Saturday, Jan. 4, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
