Tree recycling centers open

Northern Virginia Electric Cooperative and Prince William County government are accepting holiday trees for recycling.

NOVEC will accept evergreen Christmas wreaths, garland and trees at its technical center at 5399 Wellington Branch Road in Gainesville near the U.S. 29 and I-66 intersection. Customers may leave greenery in the front parking lot in the area designated by orange safety cones anytime through Jan. 11. Greens must be free of all decorations, metal ornament hooks, and light strings.

NOVEC tree crews will chop the greens into wood chips. They will deliver the wood-chip mulch to interested customer-owners at no charge when right-of-way crews are working in nearby Co-op neighborhoods.

Customers interested in free wood-chip mulch should complete the request form at www.novec.com under “Customer Services.” They should click on “Products and Other Services” and select “Wood-Chip Mulch.”
