With this year's Christmas over, it's a matter of time before decorations get boxed up and the Christmas tree gets tossed. After Jan. 12, the City of Midland will collect Christmas trees during residents' once-a-month heavy item and brush collection week.

A number of central Virginia communities are offering Christmas tree recycling programs that reduce the impacts on local landfills.


Hamilton County's five recycling centers will once again be accepting natural trees at its five recycling locations.

If you have access to a chainsaw, you can also use the tree for firewood.


Customers without yard debris service can pay for an extra 32-gallon collection and put cut trees next to their garbage containers. Anyone wishing to obtain a list of locations where the trees will be available should contact the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers project office after January 11.

In Douglas County you can drop your trees off at Bayou Gulch, Challenger Regional Park, Fairgrounds Regional Park, and Highland Heritage Regional Park.


Before putting the tree on the curb, be sure to strip it of all lights, tinsel, wire, ornaments and whatever non-tree material might be hanging from it. The trees from the nursery are planted throughout the Lancaster County Park System.
