CHRISTMAS TREE RECYCLING
LA Sanitation & Environment has curbside collection for Christmas trees, making it convenient to properly and safely recycle your tree. There are several options.
3 ways to schedule Christmas tree collection:
How to recycle your Christmas tree?
*If your Christmas tree is too big to cut and place inside the green bin, simply place the tree curbside next to your green waste bin on collection day.
Flocked trees and artificial trees can’t be recycled. Please place them in the black container to go to the landfill.
LASAN recycles Christmas trees and uses them to produce compost and mulch that is available to residents for free. Learn more here.

What else can be recycled at the holidays?
Holiday wrapping paper, cartons, cardboard, plastics 1,2, & 5 and gift boxes are also recyclable and should be placed in the blue bin. Styrofoam®, other expanded polystyrene products and plastics 3,4,6 &7 are not accepted in the blue bin. Here’s the link to the blue bin program: Blue Bin Recycling (lacitysan.org)
Starting December 18, 2023 until January 31, 2024, for homes serviced by LASAN, they are accepting extra cardboard that doesn't fit in the blue bin. Please break down your boxes, then cut and tie into 4×4 bundles weighing no more than 30 pounds. Please place the bundles next to your blue bin, facing the street so our drivers can see them.
In addition, it is illegal to place household hazardous waste, such as electronics (i.e. televisions and
computers) and batteries into the collection bins. Please take those items to one of our S.A.F.E.
