During the first two full weeks of each January, Christmas trees are collected curbside for residential homes with trash and recycling service. 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 trees are later ground into wood mulch for garden use.
Christmas Tree Drop-Off
Residents who don’t have curbside recycling service, such as those living in townhomes, apartments or condominiums, may also bring their Christmas trees to the Solid Waste Bureau during the Christmas tree collection season. Call 703-228-6570 to schedule an appointment, Mon.-Fri., 8 a.m.-3 p.m. Residents will need to show proof of residence in Arlington, such as a driver’s license.
