Taking down the tree?

It’s a responsible way to dispose of your Christmas tree and recycle any excess bottles and cans from the holiday season.

On Sunday, Jan. 2, Clayton Heights Dry Grad 2011 committee hosts a Christmas Tree Chipping and Bottle Drive event at the secondary school’s parking lot, at 7003 188 Street, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Volunteers will chip your tree back to nature and recycle your bottles and cans.

It’s by donation. Proceeds support the committee’s fundraising efforts.

The school’s 2011 Dry Grad is organized by parents of Clayton Heights grads. The aim of a dry grad party is to provide a fun, safe, entertaining event for graduates so they can socialize with other students in a drug and alcohol-free environment.
