Cut your tree into smaller pieces to put into your green cart. Make sure the lid can close.
If your green cart is full, tie extra branches (no more than four feet long) together with a natural fibre string or place them in paper yard waste bags. Set tied branches or yard waste bags at least one foot from the side of your green cart.
You can also bring your Christmas tree to a tree drop-off from December 26 to January 31.

Hey Crestmont & Valley Ridge, it is that time of year again where we all get together and clean up our communities. This year, the Valley Ridge Community Association will be helping us put on the event so we welcome all the Valley Ridge residents as well.
This is a great opportunity for all of us to clean up our garages and yards and also help out by cleaning up the green spaces around our communities. We will have garbage bags, gloves and pick-up sticks available for everyone to use. Please grab your family and come down to help out. We live in beautiful communities and it is up to us all to keep them clean and tidy. For volunteers that help out we have lots of food, snacks and drinks to keep you fueled up, and for the families we have a scavenger hunt with prizes!!!
