Christmas Tree Collection & Holiday Reminders

Natural Christmas Tree Collection

Collection will be on your regularly scheduled pickup day during the weeks of January 8th to 18th. Please ensure to remove lights, ornaments, stand and bags. Also note that any natural trees treated with artificial colourants will not be accepted.


Don’t take a holiday from sorting your waste!

As you prepare for and clean up during the holidays, please remember:

  • Wrapping paper is NOT recyclable. Please place wrapping paper, tape, ribbons, bows and foil in your regular garbage.
  • To try something different, wrap your gifts in fabric, or use reusable bags and boxes.
  • Don’t take a holiday from composting and recycling. Remind your visiting guests on how to sort in East Hants.
  • All leftover food (that can’t be consumed later) and paper products (like napkins) can go in your green cart.
