Recycle your Tree

Recycling Trees
Originally uploaded by CD-13
Now that Santa has come and gone, and presents have been unwrapped, and Christmas dinner has been eaten, it’s time to clean up. Using a quick three step process, all Angelenos can easily and safely dispose of their Christmas trees in an eco-friendly manner. Simply pick it up, cut it up, and put it in your city-issued green yard trimming bin. Residents without green bins can bring their trees to one of 28 drop-off centers throughout the city, some of which will be giving out free compact fluorescent light bulbs and trees for your yard (call 3-1-1 to find the drop-off center closest to you). Last year, more than 80,000 trees were recycled and turned into mulch for use in gardens and landscaping.
