Recycle Your Trees After the Holidays

The trees will be turned into mulch.

When the egg nog is gone and the gifts are unwrapped, make sure to recycle your Christmas tree with the county.

The Prince George’s County Department of Environmental Resources’ (DER) Waste Management Division will provide County residents with Christmas tree collection and drop-off services for recycling of their live Christmas trees, at no charge, beginning Dec. 26 and continuing through Feb. 1, 2013

Residents should put live, undecorated Christmas trees at the curb before 6:30 a.m. on their regularly scheduled collection day.

Residents may also bring their undecorated tree, at no charge, to the Prince George’s County Yard Waste Composting Facility located at 6601 Southeast Crain Highway in Upper Marlboro, Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

“I encourage you to ‘go green’ this holiday and recycle your Christmas tree," said DER Acting Director Adam Ortiz.  “By recycling your live Christmas tree, you will help to save valuable landfill space and create a valuable resource for landscaping.” 

The trees will be shredded and cured into mulch for the annual mulch giveaway.
