So the decorations and down
and the tree needs to go. How do you get rid of it?
Many of the county’s homeowners and community associations pick up Christmas trees for recycling and residents should check their community’s instructions. Leesburg provides a schedule for residents put their trees on the curb, which is shown below. In addition, Loudoun County offers five locations where residents can take their trees for recycling.
Whether dropping trees off at
one of the county’s Christmas collection sites or at the curb, residents should
remove all ornaments, lights, tinsel, wire and stands, as well as the tree bag.
Do not use Christmas Tree disposal bags.
These sites will be open through Jan. 19 to Loudoun County residents only:
