  • wear a mask;
  • only leave their vehicles to drop off items;
  • return to their vehicles immediately after dropping off items; and 
  • comply with the physical distancing requirement when out of their vehicles.

Green Cart

Natural Christmas trees can also be disposed of in your Green Cart as long as the tree is cut in 1m lengths and is a maximum 10cm diameter and the Green Cart lid is completely closed.
