Every year, more than 1 million used Christmas trees end up in California landfills. Nationwide, an estimated 15 million used Christmas trees end up in landfills. Remember to recycle trees locally by putting them in your green waste bin or turn them into mulch for water conservation and weed control in the garden.
Multi-Family residents should contact the property manager for more information on how best to dispose of trees after the holiday season at your multifamily complex. The City will provide drop-off services at specific locations: Fox Hills Area, (must call for exact location.)
Remember, it is unlawful and a serious fire hazard to leave unwanted trees at the curb or in the alleys for an extended period of time. Please recycle your Christmas tree in the green waste bins.
