Baltimore County will begin collecting Christmas trees for recycling Monday. Residents must place their trees, which must be free of decorations, stands and bags, at the front curb or street no later than Saturday to ensure pickup. Crews will not collect trees from alleys. County residents who live in apartments or condominiums should consult their property managers about tree recycling collections. Information: 410-887-2000 or go to baltimorecountymd.gov/recycling.
