Option 2: Peel Community Recycling Centre (CRC)

  • Be sure to remove all tinsel, ornaments, plastic bags, nails, wires and tree stands from your tree before bringing it to a CRC.

Additional information:

  • If you miss your Christmas tree collection day, drop your tree off at a Peel Community Recycling Centre (CRC).
