Loudoun County Offers Christmas Tree Recycling at Several Locations

Loudoun County is offering five locations for residents to drop off their Christmas trees for recycling beginning Monday, December 26, 2016, through Friday, January 20, 2017. Only natural, cut trees are accepted because the trees will be converted into a natural mulch product. The mulch is available for free year-round at the Loudoun County landfill.

Residents who receive curbside yard-waste recycling services should contact their homeowners association, town office, or recycling service provider for Christmas tree pick-up dates. Whether dropping off at one of the county’s Christmas tree collection sites or at the curb, please remove all ornaments, lights, tinsel, wire, stand, and tree bag. Dispose of the tree bag in your regular trash. If you wish to recycle your wreath, please remove all wires, bows, and any other ornamentation. Otherwise, you may dispose of the wreath with your regular household trash.

Please note that the Christmas Tree Recycling Program is a public service for Loudoun County residents only. Tree vendors operating in Loudoun County with leftover trees may recycle them at the Loudoun County landfill for $62 a ton. Netting, rope, wire, tags and other items must be removed prior to recycling. Visit www.loudoun.gov/Landfill or call 703-771-5500 for more information.
