      Please recycle your tree by cutting and placing it in your green yard
      trimmings container. If you are unable to use your green container,
      you may also recycle your tree by bringing it to one of the drop-off
      sites. Before recycling your tree, please remove all ornaments,
      decorations, tinsel and stand.

      Trees left at curbs or in alleys and streets cannot be collected.

        LA Sanitation

        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.
