DPW Statement Regarding Holiday Tree Collections

Friday, January 23, 2015

Contact: Linda Grant, 202-671-2375

(Washington, DC) “DPW is making every effort to collect and recycle holiday trees; however, we have had to suspend these collections several times this month so the tree collection crews can be available to tackle predicted snow and ice storms. As a result, trees are piling up in treeboxes, alleys, even medians and creating public safety hazards.

“Therefore, DPW trash collection crews have begun to help out by collecting these trees with the trash as the capacity of their trucks permit. Our tree collection crews will return to collecting trees when the streets are passable following snow/ice storms and these trees will be recycled.”
