Christmas Tree Recycling Begins

Done with Christmas? The Loudoun County government is offering five locations for residents who don’t have curbside service to drop off their Christmas trees for recycling.

The trees will be converted to mulch and offered free for pick-up at the county landfill on Evergreen Mills Road south of Leesburg. Tree vendors operating in Loudoun County also may recycle their leftover trees at the landfill for $62 per ton fee.

Whether dropping off at one of the county’s tree collection sites or for curbside pickup, residents should be sure to remove all ornaments, lights, tinsel, wire, and stands.

Christmas trees will be accepted for recycling at the following locations through Jan. 20:

Leesburg area: Loudoun County Landfill Recycling Center, 21101 Evergreen Mills Road. Open Monday-Saturday, 8 a.m.-4 p.m.

Lovettsville:  Game Protective Association, 16 S. Berlin Pike. Open daily.
