Christmas Tree Collection Begins Jan. 2

Christmas tree with Hanukkah ornamentReady to get rid of your Christmas tree now that the holiday has come and gone? You may have to wait.

For those who are served by Arlington County’s curbside trash pickup, Christmas tree collection will run from Jan. 2-13, 2017.

“Residents are reminded to place the tree on the curb no later than 6 a.m. on your regular trash collection day and to remove all decorations, nails, stands and plastic bags,” the county notes on its website. “The trees are later ground into wood mulch for garden use.”

Arlington residents can also bring their trees to the county’s Solid Waste Bureau near Shirlington for recycling. Or, if you want to hang on to your tree well into the new year, just throwing in the trash is an option.

“After Jan. 13, please prepare the tree for yard waste collection on your regular trash collection day,” the county website says.
