Yes, the Culver City Sanitation Dept. is picking up Christmas trees. No, you do not have to chop it up and put it in the green bin. Just take the tree out to the curb and leave it with your other trash – recycling and green waste – and be patient. There is one truck that is combing the city for trees ( or former trees, as the case may be) and will pick them up as soon as possible. If you feel your tree has been waiting too long (more than a few days) just call the Sanitation Dept. at (310) 253-6400 and give them your address. Remember, these folks start the day early, so they end early too – call before 3 p.m. and you can talk to one of the staff. After that, it’s time to leave a message.
Editor’s Note- Yahoo groups are not a source of news. They are a great source of communication, community and commentary, but not reliable facts. I am posting this today to correct a bit of misinformation I have heard from seven people. Now, they all know where to get news, and what to do with the former tree. ( And imagine if this rumor had to do with something more crucial than sanitation policy ….) Happy January!
