Christmas Tree Pick-Up and Recycling Program

Christmas Tree Pick Up and Tree Recycling

The Christmas Tree pick-up program is once again being provided by members of the Penticton Fire Department – IAFF Local 1399.  Penticton residents are encouraged to call the Penticton Fire Department at 250-490-2315 to arrange for their Christmas tree to be picked up from Dec. 28 to Jan. 18, 2017 by Fire Fighters during their off time.  A donation to the Penticton Firefighters Charitable Society, Muscular Dystrophy and/or BC Professional Firefighters Burn Fund is very much appreciated for this service. 

Residents can also drop off natural trees for chipping and recycling at Fire Hall #2 located at 285 Dawson Avenue from Dec. 26, 2015 to Jan. 31, 2016.  A donation box has been set up. The trees are then chipped and taken to the Campbell Mountain Landfill for the composting program.  On January 7th from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm the Penticton Firefighters Local 1399 and generous local sponsors will be providing BBQ hot dogs and hot chocolate for those dropping off trees.
