The City of Frederick Christmas Tree Drop Off and Recycling program will begin on December 26, 2016 and continue through January 31, 2017. The drop off points will be:
Harry Grove Stadium lower parking lot
Husky Park Yard 2 on Highland Street
Tasker's Chance parking lot on Key Parkway behind Westridge Shopping Center
Max Kehne parking lot on West 7th Street
Each park will have a drop off area designated by a sign. Please make sure trees are free of all ornaments, garland, tinsel, lights, and/or tree stands. Please remove any plastic bags from around the trees.
As part of The City of Frederick's recycling efforts, Christmas trees are collected annually and ground into mulch. This effort has many beneficial results and also conserves space in the landfill.
Mulch is good for:
Soil temperature moderation
Reduction of competition (weeds)
Recycling of nutrients through decomposition
Conserves City funds through a reduction of purchased mulch
Questions can directed to the Parks Department at 301-600-1173 or Department of Public Works at 301-600-1440. Please join The City of Frederick to conserve resources and help the environment.
