With the holiday celebrations behind us, residents are once again removing the festive decorations that mark the season, and putting them away for another year.
However, when it comes to Christmas trees, there are a few things to keep in mind safety-wise.
"If your tree is still up at this time, please make sure that it is being watered if you want to keep it around a little bit longer. If it is dried out, you want to make sure that it is removed from the home as soon as possible," advised Fire Chief Dale Feser.
"You definately do not want to be leaving them in the garage, in the home anywhere or placed outside against the house as it still constitutes a fire hazard."
For those looking to dispose of their trees, the Kinsmen and Kinettes have a solution. A free drop off point is located by the cemetery north of Estevan, with the bin placed on the east side of the cemetery road, south of the gates. It will remain available there until January 20th.
"We also want to note that the bin is strictly for organic tree waste, no garbage is to be placed in there," added Feser.
