Christmas Tree Recycling

recycle treeDecember 26, 2020 through January 25, 2021
It's the ultimate in re-gifting - give us your cut Christmas tree and we'll turn it into mulch or compost!

Please remove all tinsel, ornaments, lights, tree stands, plastic ties, etc. before bringing your natural, cut tree for recycling at any of the county's six convenient drop off locations.

(Frederick County does not provide curbside collection of Christmas trees, but many municipalities and homeowners associations do; please inquire with your local town or HOA office for information.)
