From Dec. 26 through Jan. 13, Northern Virginia Electric Cooperative will accept evergreen Christmas trees and greens at its technical center, 5399 Wellington Branch Road, Gainesville. Trees and greens — free of all decorations, ornament hooks, wire, and light strings — may be left in the parking lot in the area designated by orange safety cones.
By recycling greens into woodchips and mulch, NOVEC’s tree crews will reduce the amount of debris added to landfills after the holidays.
“Protecting the environment is a high priority at NOVEC,” says Rick Carpenter, manager of Vegetation Management. “Recycling holiday greens is just another way we help our customers and the environment.”
For more information about recycling holiday greens, contact NOVEC’s Vegetation Management department at 703-335-0500 or 1-888-335-0500, extension 1600, or [email protected].
