CITY OF LOS ANGELES OFFICIALS ANNOUNCE CHRISTMAS TREE RECYCLING PROGRAM
The three recycling options are:
1) Green Bin – Residents can follow the three-step process to recycle their trees in the green bin: A) Remove decorations and stand B) Cut tree into pieces; and C) Place in your green yard trimming bin
2) Curbside – Residents who are unable to cut or place in the green bin, may leave their tree at the curb on their weekly collection day
3) Drop-off – Residents may use one of the 21 Christmas Tree drop-off sites citywide at Los Angeles Fire Department stations and Recreation and Park sites on Sunday, January 5, 2014 from 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Go to www.lacitysan.org for locations.
Last year, more than 100,000 trees were recycled. The trees are turned into mulch and compost that is used by residents for gardening and city staff for landscaping!
