Here’s How to Recycle Your Christmas Tree

Montgomery County officials are urging residents to recycle their Christmas trees at the curb for recycling.

Cut Christmas trees are accepted year-round for residents who receive Montgomery County-provided collection service, according to a news release.

Those interesting in recycling should place trees curbside by 7 a.m. on their regularly-scheduled day. Tree must be free of decorations.

The collected trees will be taken to the Shady Grove Processing Facility and Transfer Station to be shredded and chipped for mulch.

Residents can also take their trees to the processing facility located at 16105 Frederick Road in Derwood.

Wreaths, roping and other decorations with live branches and needles are only accepted for recycling if they are separated from any wire and metal used to bind them, and are free from decorations.

Artificial trees, live trees with root balls, or that have their roots intact, cannot be accepted for recycling.
