Langley has options when it comes to Christmas tree chipping in early 2022

Chipping events raise money for local youth and other groups or various causes

Langley residents have a few options when it comes to disposing of their real Christmas trees.

Both the City and Township allow people to put their trees out with their green waste if they have curbside collection.

Many people like to take their trees to local chipping events which are fundraisers for youth and community groups or various causes.
