COUNTY PUBLIC WORKS REMINDS RESIDENTS ABOUT THE CHRISTMAS TREE RECYCLING PROGRAM
Los Angeles County is providing curbside Christmas tree recycling through January 15, 2011. Residents in unincorporated County areas can conveniently recycle their tree by placing it at curbside on their regular trash collection day.
Residents living in incorporated cities within the County can drop off their trees at designated collections sites.
All ornaments, including tinsel, decorations, and metal and plastic tree stands must be removed from the tree before it can be left at the curb or turned into a collection site.
The trees collected by residential waste haulers will be recycled into compost, mulch, or ground cover.
To view more information on the County’s Christmas tree recycling program, locate tree collection sites, and to see city-specific Christmas tree recycling guidelines, go to www.cleanla.com or call 1(800) CLEANLA.
