After the holidays comes...getting rid of your Christmas tree. Whether we like it or not, the time has finally come to say goodbye to our pine friends and clear our homes of any holiday decor.

If you opted for a natural Christmas tree this year, the city of Montreal recommends that you leave it "on the curbside after 9 p.m. the day before collection or before 7 a.m. on collection day". This schedule depends on your borough, so make sure to confirm using your address here

Here are a few guidelines to consider when disposing of your natural Christmas tree:

  • It must be free of decorations
  • It must not be in a plastic bag
  • The base of the tree must face the street (without obstructing the sidewalk)

Once the special collection period for natural Christmas trees will be over, you can still dispose of your tree in one of Montreal's many ecocentres
