Christmas Tree Disposal
Christmas trees will be collected during the first two weeks of January for recycling (January 1 – 12, 2018). Lights, decorations and stands must be removed to ensure collection. After January 12, 2018 please schedule a brush pickup to have the christmas tree removed.
All of our program information is available online at https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/publicworks/recycling-trash.
If you have any questions about our holiday collection schedule, please call 703-802-3322.
Thank you for your continued support of our program.
