Christmas tree drop-off program

When it’s time to get rid of your Christmas tree, remove the decorations and drop it off at one of the City of Saint John Christmas tree drop-off sites.

The sites will be open from January 1 to January 12, 2021.

Site locations:

Charles Gorman arena – 80 University Avenue, North.
Crescent Valley – Between 30 and 38 Taylor Avenue, North.
Peter Murray arena – 711 Dever Road, West.
Hilton Belyea arena – 390 Lowell Street, West.
Forest Hills ball field – 651 Westmorland Road, East.
*Old Sugar Refinery – 330 Charlotte Street, South/Central Peninsula.

*South/Central Peninsula residents are advised that the specific drop-off site commonly referred to as the “Old Sugar Refinery” is located at the very end of Charlotte Street and Vulcan Street. Trees are not to be deposited at the bulk terminal truck entrance or any other location on Port Saint John property.

Look for the designated area for each location. Sites will be plowed and maintained for the safety of the public and workers.

If you are unable to drop off your Christmas tree to a designated site, you can:

  • remove ALL decorations and trim;
  • delimb the tree and cut up the trunk and branches into manageable blocks (must be no longer than 4 feet and must be smaller than the diameter of 2 inches);
  • place blocks and branches in your compost cart for removal on your regular garbage and compost collection day.

We thank you for your cooperation.
