City of L.A. urges residents to recycle Christmas trees

December 28, 2011 |  9:38 pm

The city of Los Angeles is asking residents to recycle Christmas trees through curbside collections or by dropping them off at designated locations.

Residents can place their tree -- with all decorations removed -- next to their green recycling bin on collection day if the tree is too big to fit in the bin, according to the city's Bureau of Sanitation’s website.

Trees also can be cut up and placed in the bins.

Fire station and park locations also will accept Christmas trees from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Jan. 8. For a full list of drop-off sites, check here
