If your days of dressing up like an elf are over for the year and you are ready to lose the tree.....

Recycle it. Don't throw it out!
This weekend (today and tomorrow, Sat Jan 8 & Sun Jan 9 from 10-4 at various locations) the City of Vancouver, along with the Lions Club and volunteers, will be chipping and mulching trees for a donation of cash and non-perishable food items (to be donated to local charities).

So if, like me, you still have your tree and need to get rid of it you can do it in an eco friendly manner, AND do a good deed at the same time!

If you are unable to do that, there are other options as well.
Heres the link for all the locations here
We'll be saying goodbye to ours tomorrow :)
