Holiday Recycling

Christmas tree collection notice

Don't forget to recycle discarded holiday decorations this year!

Batteries can and should be recycled. If batteries, especially lithium-based, are thrown into the trash, they can cause a spark that could endanger individuals and surrounding property. Certain types of batteries, such as Nickel Cadmium rechargeable, can contaminate the environment if not properly disposed of. Batteries are valuable and recycling them can reduce the need to mine for virgin materials along with transforming reclaimable materials into other useable products. Consumer awareness is key to changing behavior and ensuring more batteries are recycled the right way and don’t end up in landfills.

MOMs Organic Market and IKEA accept single-use batteries. Home Depot and Lowes accept rechargeable batteries.

Block Styrofoam is collected for recycling in the drop-off container at the entrance to the Department of Public Works (9217 51st Avenue). No peanuts, cups, plates, or egg cartons are accepted.

Christmas Trees are collected by appointment only. Please remove ornaments, tinsel, and decorations before placing them at the curb. If using a plastic bag, please remove the tree from the bag. To schedule a collection, email publicworks@collegeparkmd.gov or call 240-487-3590.  

Holiday String Lights, working or non-working, are accepted for recycling at MOM's Organic Market (9801 Rhode Island Avenue) through the end of January.
