Recycle Christmas trees until Jan. 7 at NOVEC’s technical center in Gainesville

Northern Virginia Electric Cooperative (NOVEC) reports that it will be accepting evergreen Christmas trees and greens at its technical center at 5399 Wellington Branch Road, Gainesville, VA 20155, near I-66, from Dec. 26 through Jan. 7.

According to NOVEC’s Priscilla Knight, residents may leave trees and greens in the front parking lot in the area designated by orange safety cones. “Trees and wreaths must be free of all decorations, metal ornament hooks, wire, and light strings before NOVEC’s tree crews recycle them into woodchips and mulch,” she reminded recyclers.

According to the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, Americans add 25 percent more debris to landfills during the holiday season.

“Protecting the environment is a high priority at NOVEC,” Rick Carpenter, manager, Vegetation Management, was quoted as saying in a news release. “Recycling holiday greens is just another way we help our customers and the environment.”

For more information about recycling holiday greens, contact NOVEC’s vegetation management department at 703-335-0500 or 1-888-335-0500, extension 1600, or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
