[ARCHIVED] Curb your Live Christmas Tree

Reduce your holiday footprint by recycling your Christmas tree

LARGO, MD – The Prince George’s County Department of the Environment (DoE) offers a free curbside tree recycling program that helps residents compost their live Christmas trees. Beginning January 2 through January 30, 2023, residents can place their live, undecorated Christmas tree at the curb for pickup. No artificial trees are accepted.

To participate, residents receiving County-provided yard trim collection on Mondays should place their tinsel-free, unbagged, and undecorated live tree curbside by 6 a.m. Trees can also be dropped off at the Brown Station Road Public Container Pad & Recycling Center located at 3501 Brown Station Road in Upper Marlboro, Monday through Saturday, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. at no charge.

“I encourage residents to do their part in keeping valuable resources out of our landfill and take advantage of this free resource,” said DoE Director Andrea Crooms. “When you recycle your live tree, you give back to the environment.”

Trees collected will be chipped into mulch and made available to the public during the County’s annual spring Mulch Madness giveaway in April.
