The town of Nanton has introduced a new tree trimming program.

The program will allow residents to bring small trees and branches to the recycling depot.

The program expands on the original system where a permit was needed to dispose of the trees.

Nanton CAO Brad Mason says the new program will be more popular.

Trees and branches can not have a dimater large than that of a pop can.

The recycling depot will have extended hours to accept tree trimmings.

The new hours are Tuesday-Friday 10:30-7:00 and Saturday's from 8:00-4:00.
