Those recycling trees are asked to remove all decorations, lights, stands and nails before dropping them off. About 2,300 Christmas trees are recycled through the program each year, according to a news release.

Trees can be recycled at: the McIntire Recycling Center, Claudius Crozet Park, Greenwood Community Center, Chris Greene Lake Park, Darden Towe Park, Scottsville Community Center and Walnut Creek Park.

In the release, county officials cautioned that the McIntire Recycling Center could be busy. Darden Towe Park might be less congested and suited better for large loads and contract haulers.
