People living in Los Angeles County and its unincorporated communities can recycle their trees by leaving them curbside on regular trash collection days. The ornaments, tinsels, and tree stands must be removed for pickup by the Bureau of Sanitation.
Some cities also provide drop-off sites. The recycled trees will be used as compost and mulch, reducing the production of landfill waste.
Christmas trees will be collected and recycled through Jan. 19.
