Here’s how to get rid of your Christmas tree the PROPER way!

Yep, time to get rid of the tree (for most of us, at least). Here’s the skinny:

In D.C.

  • Trees get picked up January 14 through February 2
  • Cool to put them out with trash and recycling

In Maryland

  • Montgomery County: Trees are collected with trash/recycling at any time
  • Prince George’s County: Put trees at the curb with yard waste any time

In Virginia

  • Alexandria: Got city trash collection? You can recycle your trees at the curb
  • Arlington: Trees can be tossed at the curb during the first two full weeks of January
  • Fairfax: Live in a single family home or a townhouse? First two weeks of January.
  • Falls Church: Wednesdays in January and February are curb tree pick-up days
