Put your Christmas tree on the curb.
Thats it. They dispose of it and likely will recycle it.
Here's the flier with the details. But just put it
On the curb. That's as far
As you have to drag it.
Recycle Your Christmas Tree
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?
REMOVE all ornaments, decorations, tinsels, and stand from the tree
CUT tree in pieces to fit into the green bin, and
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.
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. However, it is illegal to place household hazardous waste, such as electronics (i.e. televisions and computers) and batteries into the collection bins. Please take those items to a S.A.F.E. Center for safe disposal and recycling.
Multi-Family Residential Recycling
Program Participation (MFRRP)
Residents of multifamily buildings are requested to place their Christmas trees at the curbside on the collection day in your neighborhood.
