Loudoun County is offering residents five locations to bring their Christmas trees to be recycled from Tuesday, Dec. 28 through Jan. 20, county officials said in a Tuesday press release.
Natural cut Christmas trees and wreaths (excluding artificial ones) will be accepted for recycling and converted into mulch at the following locations:
Leesburg: Loudoun County Landfill Recycling Center, 21101 Evergreen Mills Road, Leesburg, 20175, Open Monday through Saturday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
After the natural trees and wreaths are recycled, the resulting mulch will be available to county residents year-round free of charge at the Loudoun County Landfill, officials said.
Residents who receive curbside recycling services may contact their homeowners association, town office or recycling service provider for tree collection schedules, the county said. Residents who transport their trees in a bag are encouraged to remove and dispose of the bag with their regular trash.
Before disposing of a Christmas tree, the county said residents should remember to remove all ornaments, lights, tinsel, wire, stand and tree bags. If disposing of a natural wreath, residents are requested to remove and dispose of all wire, bows, twine, lights, and ornaments prior to recycling. If removal of such items proves impossible, county officials said residents should dispose of trees and wreaths with their regular garbage.
The Christmas tree recycling program is a public service offered to Loudoun County residents only. Tree vendors operating within Loudoun may recycle leftover trees at the county landfill for $68 per ton, and are requested to remove all netting, rope, wire, tags, and other items prior to recycling.
Vendors can visit loudoun.gov/landfill or call 703-771-5500 for further information. Residents can find further information about the county’s Christmas tree recycling program as well as other recycling programs at loudoun.gov/recycle.
The Town of Leesburg announced Monday that its trash collection contractor will collect natural Christmas trees from residents’ curbs for recycling on Monday, Jan. 3 and Monday, Jan. 10, 2022.
Prior to leaving their trees on the curb for recycling, town administrators urged residents to remove all decorations, lights, tinsel, twine, metal or plastic ties and string, stands and bases. Trees should not be left in plastic tree disposal bags, and should be placed at residents’ curbs on the night before scheduled pickup.
After the collection dates on Jan. 3 and 10, town crews will collect trees less than 8 feet tall and with trunks less than 6 inches in diameter during Leesburg’s regular town brush collection.
Leesburg residents should leave their trees out on Sunday evening for same week collection in the brush collection program. Christmas trees left on curbs next to trash cans after the scheduled recycling collection days may be picked up as trash by the town’s trash collection contractor, Leesburg officials said.
