Baltimore City curbside Christmas tree pickup begins January 4, 2011 and runs through January 28.

Unlike Baltimore County tree pickup, the Baltimore City Department of Public Works asks residents to put their trees out where their trash is normally collected, and they will be picking them up on regularly scheduled trash days.

All trees must be empty of ornaments and tinsel.

Baltimore City DPW also offers the ability to bring your tree in to have it mulched, and if you bring bags, you can take that mulch for your own personal use. There are two locations for this service, Sisson Street Citizen Drop-off Center, 2840 Sisson Street, and Reedbird Avenue Citizen Drop-off Center, 701 Reedbird Avenue both from 9am-2pm.

If you had a real tree for your holiday celebration, you have some time to still enjoy it, or you can put it out for collection as soon as Tuesday.

Happy New Year!
