Holiday Helpers

Green Angel
What do bungee jumping, opera tickets and snowboard lessons have in common? They are all great gift ideas in Metro Vancouver's Annual Holiday Waste Reduction Campaign.

Every year residents are encouraged to 'create memories', not garbage during the holidays. Send a free e-card, watch videos on memorable stories and unique gift ideas and learn more about the garbage issue. You can also share your unique and interesting gift ideas. For more information on how you can be a Green Angel, please visit Metro Vancouver's website.

Tree Chipping
In Maple Ridge there are two options to dispose of cut Christmas trees:

    Ridge Meadows Search & Rescue

Chipping is done by donation with proceeds going to Ridge Meadows Search and Rescue and First Haney Rovers. If you can't drop your tree off at the Search and Rescue Building, you can arrange for a pick-up. Simply email your name, telephone number and address to the Scouts.

Or,
