Holiday Tree Recycling in Gaithersburg, Maryland


Please recycle your holiday trees as part of the City of Gaithersburg's weekly recycling program. Simply put the tree out curbside for Thursday recycling day and it will be collected by the City contractor. Please note these helpful reminders:

  • Trees must be in their natural state.
  • Remove all decorations, including tinsel and angel hair.
  • Be sure there is no metal attached to the tree.
  • Do not wrap trees in plastic.
  • Place the tree curbside next to your green recycling bin.
  • Artificial trees will not be recycled.
  • Trees with root balls will not be recycled.
  • Trees will only be picked up from your residence. Do not take the trees to other sites such as schools or public buildings.

Tree recycling is very important and a good source of mulch. I hope you have had a nice weekend Roy.

Holiday tree recycling is a good thing and re-purposes the trees.

Good luck and success.

It just doesn't seem possible that Christmas is over and a new year ready to begin. Trees will be lining the curb soon.

Hi Roy Kelley ,  It was always fun trying to remove all that tinsel on the tree.  Eventually we didn't decorate with it.  We settled for popcorn and cranberries.
