City of Rockville Continues to Collect Christmas Trees

published: January 14th, 2021 by in Community

Rockville is collecting Christmas trees as part of its regular recycling collection throughout the month of January.  The trees will be taken to the Montgomery County Recycling Center, where they will become mulch. The mulch at the recycling center is available year-round and can be picked up, for free, at 16105 Frederick Rd.

Residents should place cut trees at the curb for pick-up on regular recycling days after removing all ornaments and metals, lighting wires, stands and decorations, including tinsel.

  • Trees should not be bagged.
  • Unwanted artificial trees should be dismantled and placed in the gray refuse 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 Montgomery County transfer station.

For more information on recycling and refuse service, holiday tree collection or to make a bulk collection appointment, call 240-314-8568. Visit the City of Rockville Trash/Recycling webpage: https://www.rockvillemd.gov/300/Recycling-Trash-Yard-Waste
