Christmas tree drop-off for Oliver residents

EZBins is sponsoring a natural tree drop-off bin for area residents

EZBins and the Town of Oliver have teamed up to offer a Christmas tree drop-off for residents until Jan. 10.

A pink EZBin will be located on Station Street, just north of Bank Avenue, on the east boulevard for residents to drop off their natural trees. The town said in a release that the trees must be free of decorations and tinsel.

Alternatively, residents can bring their natural tree to any landfill free of charge. Those looking to recycle Christmas light strings, bulbs and fixtures can do so at the T2 Market or the Oliver Landfill.

Foil gift wrap, musical greeting cards, ribbons and bows will not be accepted in recycling bins. There will be no change of dates for garbage and recycling pick-up in the town.

For more information about the collection cycle in the Town of Oliver, visit or call 250-485-6200.
