Los Angeles City Council President Pro Tempore Mitch O’Farrell, 13th District, along with leaders from the Los Angeles Fire Department and L.A. Sanitation and Environment announced the city’s Christmas tree recycling program on Dec. 22.
LASAN recycles Christmas trees to produce compost and mulch that is available to residents. People should cut trees into pieces and place them in their LASAN bin, or leave the tree on the curb for pickup. Residents of multifamily buildings should place trees curbside on trash collection day. Scheduling a bulky item pickup may be done through MYLA311 or by calling (800)773-2489.
Angelenos can also deliver their tree to some LAFD stations for recycling. For information and a list of fire stations accepting Christmas trees, visit lacitysan.org.
