Get Rid o' Tannenbaum for Free

The holidays are over, and it’s time to throw away that once beautiful Christmas tree.

D.C. residents who receive D.C. trash and recycling services, can place holiday trees and other greenery in curbside tree boxes, without ornaments or tinsel.Trees will be picked up during a special two-week collection and chipped.

Tree chippings are added to leaves collected during leaf collection season to make compost, which is provided free of charge to residents during the spring, summer and fall.

The program runs through Jan. 10.
