Wondering what you should do with your Christmas tree after the holiday? Don’t just throw it out, recycle it. LA Sanitation has CURBSIDE collection for Christmas trees.
Dried-out trees are a dangerous fire hazard and should not be left in the home or placed outside. For curbside collection, if you live in a single-family home, remove all decorations, tinsel, and stands. Cut the tree in half and place it in your LA City Sanitation green clippings container. If you live in a multifamily building, please place your tree curbside on regular collection days.
Trees will be recycled and turned into compost and mulch.
To drop off your tree at a fire station through mid-January, visit:
·FIRE STATION #71
107 S. Beverly Glen Boulevard, 90024 – Holmby Hills/Bel-Air
Also, you can go to one of two mulching facilities, weekdays, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.:
·Lopez Canyon Environmental and Education Center
·Harbor District Yard
Finally, on Sunday, January 8, 2017, from 9:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m., you can drop off your tree:
Balboa Sports Center
17015 Burbank Boulevard
