Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree – How Do I Dispose of Thee?

Christmas is over, the holidays are wrapping up soon, and that Christmas tree you put up in the Living Room is starting to shed all over the floor.

Blacksburg, Christiansburg and Radford all provide curbside Christmas tree recycling (shameless plug forthcoming – and this company provides it for your household recyclables), and have posted information on their websites.

In Blacksburg, tree collection begins January 3rd, and continues through the first two weeks of January.  Have them out to your curb by 7am, and all trees and greenery must be free of decorations and wire.  Collected trees will be chipped, and used as an alternate fuel source. See more on their website.

In Christiansburg, collection begins December 27th through January 13th.  Again, all trees must be free of decorations and wire. More information is on their website, as well.

In Radford, City officials tell me that they’ll be collecting trees as you put them out, so go ahead and start dragging them to the curb on your trash day, and City crews will dispose of them.  No information is on their website, yet.

Until next year …
