It’s that time of year again, time to take down that dry, brittle, has-been Christmas tree and kick it to the curb. We thought neighbors would like a heads up that curbside Christmas tree pickup will occur between January 13 and February 2 on the day of your regular recycling pickup. Or you can go the extra mile and drop trees/greenery at the Fort Totten or Benning Road transfer stations. From the DDOT tree collection page:
The first option is for residents to bring their trees and greenery, free of charge, to either of the District’s transfer stations. The Fort Totten Transfer Station is located at 4900 John F. McCormack Drive, NE, and the Benning Road Transfer Station is located at 3200 Benning Road, NE.
The second option, also free of charge, is for residents to put their trees and greenery out where their trash and recycling is collected between January 13 and February 2. These items will be collected on residents’ regularly scheduled recycling days during this period. This collection service is only available to residents who are serviced by DPW.
