Christmas tree recycling will begin Jan. 3 in Arlington, when the county starts picking up the old trees along its usual garbage and recycling collection routes. Houses and townhouses that have county garbage collection should put trees out on no later than 6 a.m. on their trash days.
For apartment and condominium residents, recycling your tree means bringing it down to the Solid Waste Bureau at the Arlington Trades Center, 4300 South 29th Street. Trees can be dropped off any time on Saturday, or by appointment Monday through Friday.
