Recycle Your Christmas Tree Today! - SendMeRSS

Unlike last year, there has yet to be a fatal fire in Los Angeles involving a Christmas Tree... but the clock is ticking!

In less than 30 seconds a small fire involving your holiday tree can become an inferno. Increase your odds of survival: get the tree out of your home today!

The LAFD encourages you to remove and recycle your natural Christmas Tree as soon as possible. In Los Angeles, convenient service is available with your weekly rubbish collection, or at special drop-off locations.

Here are the details...

Recycle at Home: Use Your Green Bin

Residents with green yard trimming bins are encouraged to recycle their Christmas Trees by following 3 easy steps:
  1. REMOVE ornaments, decorations, tinsel and stand;

  2. CUT the tree in pieces to fit into the green bin; and

  3. PLACE the tree pieces in the green bin for regular pick-up.
No Green Bin?: Bring Your Tree to a Drop-off Site!

Residents without green bins can use one of 28 drop-off sites accepting trees only on Saturday, January 5 and Sunday, January 6, 2008 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM.

For a City of Los Angeles drop-off site near you, call 3-1-1 or visit:
