Trees Must be at Curb No Later than Saturday, January 16
The collection of live Christmas trees for recycling in Baltimore County will take place over a two-week period, beginning Monday, January 11.
To ensure collection of Christmas trees, residents must have the trees out at the curb no later than Saturday, January 16.
Residents must follow these simple rules when placing their Christmas trees at the curb to be recycled:
- Only set out live (not artificial) trees.
- Set out the tree only (no lights, decorations, tinsel, bags, tree stands, etc.).
- Only set out trees at the front curb or street; trees will not be collected from alleys.
Baltimore County collectors will pick up Christmas trees in standard trash and recycling trucks, and deliver them to County facilities to be chipped and later used as mulch. Baltimore County residents who live in an apartment or condominium should follow their property manager’s rules when recycling their Christmas trees.
Residents who wish to drop off Christmas trees themselves may do so starting Saturday, December 26, 2015. Christmas trees (no lights, decorations, tinsel, bags, tree stands, etc.) may be taken to any one of the County’s three drop-off locations.
For directions to the County’s drop-off centers, residents may visit the Bureau of Solid Waste Management website or call 410-887-2000.
