Christmas Tree Recycling

January 2 - January 12

Christmas tree on curb for recycling pickup.

During the first two full weeks in 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.

After Jan. 12, please prepare the tree for yard waste collection on your regular trash collection day. Once collected, trees will be recycled into mulch.

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.
