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.

Thanks Jacqueline! I was getting asked if it was too late - I guess not.

The city is about a week behind in collecting trees.  According to the folks at 311 and the Bureau of Sanitation, they didn't have enough trucks to travel all of the streets with trash day on any given day during the past few  weekends, which were peak for households putting out their trees.  They are catching up now, and hope to have collected all trees by the current week's pick-up day.  REMEMBER that they will NOT pick up FLOCKED trees.   Those have to be put into the regular trash bin.
