Owners of real Christmas trees can begin recycling them on December 27.
The city’s 11 Let’s Chip In depots will open, where trees will be accepted until January 20, 2016.
The city asks residents to remove all plastic tree bags, tinsel, decorations, and tree stands before leaving a tree at a depot.
Residents can also help themselves to free wood chips, which will be available in early January.
Trees placed on the curb or beside a recycling/garbage cart will not be picked up.
Winnipeggers recycled 11,000 trees last season.
