If you don't want to drop off your Christmas tree yourself for recycling, you can have it picked up for $25 through SSCOPE.

How far can $25 go?

One way is to contact SSCOPE to pick up your Christmas tree for $25.

The contributions will help support the Winnipeg non-profit organization with their purpose of seeking employment for individuals with mental health problems.

The organization supports those individuals by offering casual paid employment, such as lawn mowing, snow shovelling or window washing throughout the community,

The annual program will run until Jan. 20 to correspond with the working hours of Winnipeg’s ChipIt locations.

Other donations accepted are clothes, housewares, and any other valuable items that can be used in SSCOPE’s Treasures Thrift store or by their employees.

Get rid of two Christmas trees for $45, as long as they are in the same location.

Schedule your pickup through www.sscope.org, at 204-987-6300 or by emailing sscope@sscope.org.
