Christmas tree recycling to begin this week

The Albemarle County Parks and Recreation Department will operate seven free drop-off sites for Christmas trees from Thursday through Jan. 19.

The hours are daily from 7 a.m. until dark.

The program collects approximately 2300 Christmas trees each year and turns them into mulch.

Christmas tree recycling sites:

» Crozet Park in Crozet

» Greenwood Community Center in Greenwood

» Chris Greene Lake Park in Earlysville

» Darden Towe Park on Elks Drive

» Scottsville Community Center in Scottsville

» Walnut Creek Park off Old Lynchburg Road

» Rivanna Solid Waste Authority Recycling Center on McIntire Road (Note: Sunday hours are 12:30-5:30pm)

Please remove all decorations, lights, stands and nails before dropping off trees.

The sites are only accepting discarded Christmas trees; please do not bring yard waste.

The recycled trees will be chipped into mulch and the mulch will be available for free starting Feb. 1 at Darden Towe Park.

The county’s Christmas Tree Recycling Program has been helping residents discard trees and reducing the impact on our landfills since 1988.
