Christmas Tree Recycling in Reston

Christmas tree with Hanukkah ornamentYou’ll have to wait a few more days to get rid of your Christmas tree, assuming if you want it to be collected and recycled.

If you receive Fairfax County curbside pickup of trash and recycling, you can recycle your live Christmas tree on your normal collection date during the first two weeks of January.

The tree can be no more than eight feet tall and all tree stands, ornaments, tinsel, lights and tree toppers should be removed before recycling.

The cost of the collection is included as part of your regular, paid collection service. For larger trees, contact your collector for recycling instructions.

If you are in a private Reston cluster, check with your cluster board or trash service provider to find out specifics for your neighborhood.

Christmas trees may also be recycled at the I-66 Transfer Station. There is a small processing fee of $1 per tree.
