    Towns set up Christmas Tree recycling programs

    Purcellville and Leesburg have announced the details of their respective Christmas tree recycling programs.

    In Purcellville, the curbside refuse and recycling contractor, American Disposal Services, will collect Christmas Trees only for recycling on the first two Wednesday collection days in January, which is Jan. 2 and Jan. 9.

    Regular yard waste collection will end Dec. 26, so do not place yard waste curbside after that date. Yard waste collection will start again on March 6.

    In Leesburg, solid waste collection contractor, CSI, will collect non-artificial Christmas trees from residential customers as part of their regular recycling collection Jan. 3 and Jan. 10 for the southeast and southwest quadrants and Jan. 4 and Jan. 11 for the northeast and northwest areas.

    Christmas trees must be placed at the curb before 6 a.m. on the day of collection.

    Loudoun Country will also allow citizens to bring Christmas trees for recycling to five sites from Dec 26 to Jan.17:

    •Leesburg, Loudoun County Landfill Recycling Center, 21101 Evergreen Mills Road., Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

    •Lovettsville, Game Protective Association, 16 South Berlin Pike, open daily

    •Purcellville, Franklin Park, 17501 Franklin Park Drive, open daily 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

    •South Riding, Town Hall (rear parking lot next to tennis court), 43055 Center St., open daily

    •Sterling, Claude Moore Park, 21544 Old Vestal’s Gap Road., open daily 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

    Christmas trees are recycled into free mulch, which is available at the Loudoun County Landfill.

    When recycling trees, remove all decorations from trees, such as tinsel, fake snow, angel hair, lights, twine, metal, plastic ties and string to keep from contaminating the mulch.
