Northern Virginia Electric Cooperative will accept post-holiday cut Christmas trees and greens at its technical center at 5399 Wellington Branch Road in Gainesville, near I-66 and Route 29. Consumers should leave greens in the parking lot area designated by orange safety cones from Dec. 26, 2021 to Jan. 9, 2022.
All greens must be free of all decorations, ornament hooks, wires, and light strings.
NOVEC’s Vegetation Management employees will grind the greens into mulch to reduce holiday waste added to landfills.
“Recycling holiday greens is just another way we help area residents and the environment,” says Rick Carpenter, NOVEC Vegetation Management manager.
For more information about recycling holiday greens, contact NOVEC’s Vegetation Management department at 703-335-0500 or 1-888-335-0500, or VegetationMgmt@novec.com.
