Here's How To Recycle Christmas Trees In Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Los Angeles officials Wednesday reminded Angelenos of the city's Christmas tree recycling program that helps residents properly dispose of their trees after the holidays.

To have a Christmas tree turned into compost and mulch at no cost, residents can chop their tree into smaller pieces and put them into their green bin.

Trees can also be left on the curb if a bulky item pickup is scheduled. Residents can schedule the pickup through MYLA311 or 1-800-773-2489.

Trees can also be delivered to a designated LAFD station, including Fire Stations 3, 21, 28, 29, 36, 44, 64, 65, 77, 81, 88, 94, and 106.

Those in multi-family buildings are asked to place their trees curbside on trash collection day. All decorations, tinsel and stands should be removed.
