Frederick offers tree recycling -- Gazette.Net


The City of Frederick will offer Christmas tree recycling through the end of January.

Trees can be dropped off at four locations: Harry Grove Stadium’s lower parking lot, Husky Park Yard 2 on Highland Street, Tasker’s Chance parking lot on Key Parkway behind the Westridge Shopping Center and Max Kehne parking lot on West 7th Street.

Each location will have a drop-off area designated by a sign.

Trees should not have any lights, ornaments, garland, tinsel or tree stands, and should have any plastic bags removed from them.

The city collects trees each year and grinds them into mulch to be used around the city.

Questions can be directed to the city’s Parks Department at 301-600-1173 or Public Works department at 301-600-1440.
