How to Dispose of a Christmas Tree if You Live in Los Angeles

Posted by

Well, the season is passing us by and soon every angeleno and their mother will be taking down the ornaments and looking to get their now dying symbol of the Yuletide out of their house as soon as possible.

So what’s the best way for you to dispose of your Christmas tree if you live in Los Angeles?


If you have L.A. city trash service that includes green bins, you can simply cut up the trees and put the assorted parts into the green bin. Trees that are on the curb next to the green bin on the regularly scheduled trash day will also be collected by city trash crews.
