Baltimore County Christmas tree pick up 2012 will be here before we know it, so here are the details in order to be prepared!

Tree pick up will begin the week of January 9, 2012, and to ensure your tree is taken, it must be placed at the curb by January 14.

PLEASE NOTE that the Department of Public Works will not be collecting from alleys, so if you live in a neighborhood like Rodgers Forge, where trash is generally collected from the alley, your tree needs to be placed in front of your house at the curb.

Baltimore County officials also caution us to make sure that there are no decorations on the tree, it is not in a bag, and no tree stand attached, so if you have tinsel or anything of that sort, it must all be removed before placing out for collection.

If you would like your tree removed earlier, or should you miss the collection, you can also take your tree to one of three places in order to have it recycled & made into mulch. Tree drop off begins December 27, 2011.

Those three locations for drop off are: Baltimore County Resource Recovery Facility off Warren Road in Cockeysville, Western Acceptance Facility in Halethorpe, and Eastern Sanitary Landfill Solid Waste Management Facility in White Marsh off Pulaski Highway.

So, if you had a real tree for Christmas, just make sure to have it taken down by the 9th to ensure it can have a second life as mulch for the County!

Happy New Year!
