Tree Recycling Makes the Holidays Greener

Christmas tree on street curbs for trash pick

This article has been updated. Please see the note at the bottom of the article.

Rockville collects Christmas trees as part of its recycling collection.

Place trees at the curb for pickup on regular recycling and trash collection days after removing all ornaments and metals, wires, stands and decorations, including tinsel. Trees should not be bagged. There is no deadline for curbside collection of trees.

Artificial trees cannot be recycled and should be placed in the gray trash cart for regular weekly collection. Artificial trees that are too large to fit in the cart can be collected by appointment as one of six bulk collections allowed per year or taken to the transfer station.

For bulk-waste disposal information, visit www.rockvillemd.gov/bulkwaste.

Note: The Montgomery County Recycling Center, which formerly converted the trees into mulch, no longer offers this service.
