In Arlington County, Christmas trees will be picked up from residents' curbs from January 2 to January 12 on their regular trash collection days.

When the holidays are over, don't forget to treecycle your "live" Christmas tree.

The tree pickup program not only helps residents clear out their houses for the New Year, but it also helps keep the city lovely.

The city also wants to make sure you know to keep certain Christmas related trash out of your recycling container.

Christmas ornaments, lights, and stands must be removed from the tree.

Residents can have their Christmas trees picked up on their regular collection days.

Fish and Wildlife says thousands of trees are dropped off every single year across the state as part of this program.

Tree drop-off program will end January 15, but residents may still drop off trees after this date at the transfer station or landfill during normal operating hours.

The council said: "These sites are for real Christmas trees only".

The trees collected by the Public Works Department are ground up into mulch to be used by the Gateway Streetscape Foundation in flowerbeds throughout Martinsville and Henry County. Flocked trees will not be accepted.

Even though most Christmas tree farms are only left with a few trees after the busy Christmas season, what happens to these unsold cut Christmas trees? Many people still want Christmas greens after that point for a gift wreath, so any trees left standing get cut up for that goal.

Trees must be placed at least 3 feet away from garbage carts to guarantee collection of both the Christmas trees and the garbage carts.

To participate in the program, residents are asked to place their undecorated trees on the curb in front of their homes.
