Christmas Tree Recycling Dec. 2013 – Jan. 2014

Educational Resources


    Christmas Tree Disposal Info – 2013/2014

    There are approximately 28 million Real Christmas Trees sold in the U.S. every year. Real trees are a renewable, recyclable resource. CVWMA encourages residents throughout the Central Virginia region to recycle their personal trees. The Christmas Tree Recycling Program offered by our member localities to their residents is yet another way to recycle and go green for the holidays. The recycled trees will be ground into a mulch product.

    Christmas Tree Recycling Available in Central Virginia

    • Please be sure to remove all decorations, tinsel, bulbs, wire and bolts from the tree.  Unless indicated, sites will grind trees into mulch.  Use of each site/option is restricted to residents of the sponsoring city or county only.
    •  Note: Check dates and Hours of Operation for your specific locality below.
