Video: Christmas Tree Collection in Arlington

Arlington’s Christmas annual tree collection and recycling program has begun, and the county has created a short video (above) to help residents understand how the program works.

According to the video, Arlington County collects more than 9,000 Christmas trees every year. The trees are brought to the county’s Solid Waste Bureau and ground into mulch, which is then redistributed to residents who want to use the mulch in their yards and gardens.

This year’s Christmas tree collection runs from Jan. 3 to 17 on normal trash collection days. All stands, lights and decorations should be removed from the tree before it’s placed curbside. As the video explains, residents who don’t have curbside recycling service — such as those living in apartments — can call 703-228-6570 to schedule an appointment to drop off their trees at the Solid Waste Bureau.

    This required a video?

    Apparently the collection guys haven’t gotten the memo, because they left mine on the street earlier this week.

    Its fine. Would have been better with the hot girl from the “car free” video.

    Looking for government waste? How about the salaries of whomever made a video that was totally unnecessary.
