Recycling Your Christmas Tree

Make plans now to recycle your Christmas tree after the holidays! Arlington County makes it easy for residents of single-family homes. Unfortunately residents of townhouses, apartments, and condos are in for a schlep:
Christmas Tree Collection will be from January 7 - 18, 2008 on your regular refuse day. Since trees will be ground into wood mulch, please remove the tree stand, lights, and decorations. Please do not place the tree in a plastic bag. [...]

Residents that do not have curbside recycling service, such as those living in townhouses, apartments, or condominiums, may also bring their Christmas trees to the Solid Waste Bureau during the Christmas tree collection season. Please call 703-228-6570 to schedule an appointment between 8 a.m.-3 p.m., Monday through Friday. The Solid Waste Bureau is located at the Arlington Trades Center, 4300 S. 29th St. Residents will need to show proof of residence in Arlington, such as a driver's license. Trees may also be dropped off the first Saturday of each month at the Trades Center without an appointment. Please call 703-228-6570 to make an appointment or for additional information.
