Recycle Your Christmas Tree This Holiday Season
Posted by Councilmember Englander on January 06, 2017 at 1:29 PM
Dried-out trees are a dangerous fire hazard. As you're disposing of your Christmas tree this Holiday Season, be sure to go green and recycle with LA Sanitation curbside collection.
Collected Christmas trees will be recycled into compost and mulch that is available to residents for free.
You can cut your tree into pieces and place them inside the green bin for regular pick-up. If your tree is too large to cut, you can place the tree next to your green waste bin on collection day. Be sure to remove all ornaments, decorations, tinsels and the stand from your tree prior to disposal.
In addition, holiday wrapping paper, cartons, cardboard, Styrofoam and other expanded polystyrene products, plastics and gift boxes are also recyclable and should be placed in the blue bin.
It is illegal to place household hazardous waste into the collection bins. You can take items to the Nicole Bernson S.A.F.E. Center for safe disposal and recycling on Saturdays and Sundays from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.
