MARTINSVILLE CHRISTMAS TREE COLLECTION AND RECYCLING

The City of Martinsville offers recycling of live Christmas trees following the holidays. The trees are ground into mulch and used by Gateway Streetscape Foundation on various plant bed sites throughout the community.

Beginning Tuesday, December 27th through Thursday, January 12th, the City will collect live Christmas trees for recycling. Trees may be placed at the back of the curb and it will not be necessary to call for a scheduled pickup. After January 12th, pickup must be scheduled through the City’s Bulk Item Pick–Up Program by calling 403-5419.

Citizens can also deliver the trees directly to the Martinsville Jail Annex (City Farm) located on Clearview Drive. Signs will be posted for the drop off site.
