Chicago Park Districts Will Collect, Recycle Your Christmas Trees

Chicago Park Districts Will Collect, Recycle Your Christmas Trees

Natural trees up to 6 feet tall will be picked up through January 6 on designated trash collection days.

For those in apartments, check with your property manager or landlord.

Christmas trees account for a large of amount of green waste this time of year - 185,000 trees in New Mexico alone - which is why officials are making it easy to "go green" for the holidays. Trees taller than 6 feet should be cut in half.

Residents with yard waste collection can set their trees, including live ones, at the curb by 6 a.m. on their regularly scheduled yard waste collection day.

The parish's Public Works Department will pick up Christmas trees curbside around the parish on January 8, 9 and January 10.

A Turtle Cove trailer drop off site will also be maintained at Middendorf's Restaurant beginning Jan 4. Bundles must weigh less than 40 pounds.

Christmas trees may also be taken to any one of the county's three trash and recycling drop-off facilities in White Marsh, Cockeysville and Halethorpe starting this week. Flocked trees may be taken there or disposed of by scheduling a pickup on your assigned bulk trash collection day.

All cities ask that residents remove trees from bags and take off ornaments, lights, stands and other decorations before disposal. Check the Fairfax County website for more details. Undecorated trees should be placed outside no later than 6 a.m.

Residents should place trees on top of the snow, and any tree buried under snow might not be collected.

Local farmers depend on the mulch created by recycling green waste, and that in turn helps our community to be self-sustaining.

In Prince William County, residents can drop off their cut trees at several locations: the Prince William County Landfill; the Balls Ford Road Compost Facility; Leesylvania State Park; or Northern Virginia Electric Cooperative in Gainesville.
