The collection of live Christmas trees for recycling in Baltimore County will take place over a two-week period beginning Monday, Jan. 14. To ensure collection, trees must be set out no later than Saturday, Jan. 19.
    Christmas trees will only be collected if they are set out on a front curb or street; no trees will be collected from alleys. Baltimore County apartment or condominium dwellers should follow managers’ rules for recycling Christmas trees. All lights, decorations, tinsel, bags, tree stands, etc., must be removed from trees before collection.
    Trees will be transported to county facilities for mulching.
