Councilmember Tom LaBonge joined Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Council President Eric Garcetti in announcing the city’s new Curbside Christmas Tree Recycling Program.
After collecting the trees, the city turns them into bark chips that are then available for residents to use in their gardens.
There are several options for disposing of your tree after the holidays. For example, you can cut it into pieces and place it in your green bin. If your Christmas tree is too big for that, simply place the tree next to your green waste bin on collection day.
You can also drop your tree at designated parks and fire stations. For more information on those locations, please visit www.TomLaBonge.com.
