Christmas Tree Recycling...
After the Christmas Tree comes down this year, take it to be recycled.
St. Mary's County
Beginning in December 1993, Christmas trees were accepted at the St. Andrews
Landfill and Point Lookout State Park free of charge. In December 1994 the
seasonal program was expanded to include drop-off locations at all six (6)
County operated convenience centers and the St. Maryís River Watershed Park.
Typical collection dates are between December 26 and the end of January. Each
year, trees left at the convenience centers are collected and ground into mulch
on-site. Approximately 15 tons of mulch is generated from the processing the
Christmas Trees. Donations of mulch have also been made to the Horticulture
Program. Trees can also be dropped off at the signed areas near the park
entrances and will be used to provide animal habitats. For specific times and
dates contact the Point Lookout Park Service at (301) 872-5688 or the County
Solid Waste Manager at (301) 863-8400. Please remove all tinsel, garland and
Christmas trees must be unadorned and tinsel free. NO PLASTIC BAGS
