The EASIEST way is to remove everything from the tree and put in INSIDE your green recycled bin for pickup on the regular pickup day. Here are full details:
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.
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.
