Christ­mas tree re­cy­cling col­lec­tion be­gins

The Avenue News - - FRONT PAGE -

The col­lec­tion of live Christ­mas trees for re­cy­cling in Bal­ti­more County will take place over a twoweek pe­riod, be­gin­ning Mon­day, Jan­uary 14, 2019. Be­cause Christ­mas tree col­lec­tion dates will vary from place to place, res­i­dents must have trees set out no later than Satur­day, Jan­uary 19 to en­sure col­lec­tion.

Res­i­dents should place trees out for pick-up at the same lo­ca­tion where they would nor­mally place trash and re­cy­cling for col­lec­tion.

In ad­di­tion, res­i­dents must fol­low these rules when plac­ing their Christ­mas trees out to be re­cy­cled:

• Only set out live (not ar­ti­fi­cial) trees.

• Set out the tree only (no lights, dec­o­ra­tions, tin­sel, bags, tree stands, etc.). Bal­ti­more County col­lec­tors will pick up Christ­mas trees in stan­dard trash/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 Wed­nes­day, De­cem­ber 26, 2018. 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.
