County to accept Christmas trees for recycling through Jan. 9
The Keep Henrico Beautiful Committee and Henrico County Department of Public Utilities will accept Christmas trees for recycling into mulch from Dec. 26 through Jan. 9. The free service, which preserves landfill space and the environment, is available to Henrico residents only. Trees will be accepted at the following locations:
• Henrico Government Center, 4301 E. Parham Road, in the lower parking lot;
• Eastern Government Center, 3820 Nine Mile Road, in the front parking lot;
• Springfield Road Public Use Area, 10600 Ford’s Country Lane, near Nuckols Road and Interstate 295; and
• Charles City Road Public Use Area, 2075 Charles City Road.
Trees can be brought anytime to the Henrico Government Center and Eastern Government Center and from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days per week to the Springfield Road and Charles City Road public use areas. Trees must be free of tinsel, lights, ornaments, tree stands and water bowls.
Mulch is available to Henrico residents at the public use areas. For details about the tree recycling program, call (804) 501-4502.
