WOW..  so much more to share with you for the month of January!!!

Christmas Tree Collection Postponed - now Jan.11


Due to weather and snow conditions this past weekend, the scheduled Christmas Tree Collection (which was going to be on January 3) has been postponed and will be collected on Sunday, January 11, 2015.


Local groups, Northern Dance Theatre Society and the North Peace Senior Secondary Prom Committee, will come around and pick up the trees between 9:00am and 4:00pm.


Place your Christmas tree at the curb before 9:00am and please remember to remove all decorations, tinsel and plastic tree bags.


Residents may also drop off their Christmas trees anytime during the holidays at the City's Snow Removal Dump Site which is located at 79 Avenue and 93 Street (beside DGS Astro Paving).


The Christmas trees that are dropped off and collected will be chipped and used along the trail systems.  


Please direct any questions to Sonya Wiebe, Recreation Programmer at 250.787.5785 or swiebe@fortstjohn.ca
