Don't just throw the tree in the median, recycle that Christmas tree: CURBSIDE COLLECTION!

Keep the spirit alive and your community beautiful - recycle that Christmas tree. Please tell your neighbors how easy getting rid of that tree can be.

Call the City of Los Angeles Christmas Tree Recycling Hotline: (800) 5-TREE-56 for information about recycling in your neighborhood.

Christmas Tree Recycling Program

The City of LA Bureau of Sanitation has CURBSIDE collection for Christmas trees. If your Christmas tree is too big to cut and place it inside the green waste bin, simply place the tree next to your green waste bin on collection day.

Using your green bin to recycle Christmas tree?

  1. REMOVE all ornaments, decorations, tinsels, and stand from the tree
  2. CUT tree in pieces to fit into the green bin, and
  3. PLACE the tree pieces inside the green bin for regular pick-up on collection day. Collected Christmas trees will be recycled into compost and mulch.
Multi-Family Residential Recycling
Program Participation (MFRRP)


Residents of multifamily buildings are requested to place their Christmas trees at the curbside on the day of collection by the Bureau of Sanitation. Please remove all ornaments, decorations, tinsels, and stand from tree.

Visit the City website at www.lacity.org for collection day information

Thanks Jeremy! That's great to know.

Don't forget us on the west side of Crenshaw - we're LA County, not city.   We can leave our trees on the curb on collection day, up to the 19th, and they'll be taken away.

www.CleanLA.com says "Residents of the County’s 160 unincorporated communities can recycle their trees by leaving them curbside on regular trash collection days, December 26 through January 19, 2013.  The trees collected will be recycled and used as compost, mulch, or ground cover, which reduces the production of landfill waste and preserves natural resources."
