To all Albermarle County and City of Charlottesville Residents.
The Albemarle County Parks and Recreation Department has begun its Christmas Tree Recycling program. The program runs from December 26th to January 18th. There are seven county parks where you can drop off you tree. See the press release with park information here.
The Charlottesville Curb Side Pick-Up Program will be picking up trees for city residents beginning the week of January 5th. Trees must be at the curbside by 7a.m.
All of the trees collected by the City and County will be taken to Darden Towe where they will be “recycled” and chipped into mulch. The mulch will then be available to the public at no charge when it is ready in February.
Be sure that all of the decorations are removed from the tree before dropping it off or leaving it at the curb. Be sure to check it twice!
I would like to offer Christmas tree pick up for my customers that are residents of Albemarle County. I am still arranging the details but my plan would be to have one day during the week of January 5th where I will collect the trees and take them to one of the drop of sites. If you are interested in having me pick up your tree please let me know. I am not going to charge anything for the service. I will only request that you make a donation to a charity of your choosing. It's my way of keeping the Christmas Spirit alive a little farther into the new year. Once I find out the level of interest and finalize the details I will let everyone know.
