Christmas Tree Disposal

Keeping Christmas Trees in the house after Christmas Day becomes more dangerous with each additional day that passes. Live trees die and dry out, quickly becoming fire hazards. In areas where trash pickup services separate items that can be recycled, it may be permissable to put your tree in the green bin.

In the City of Los Angeles, for example, Christmas trees can be cut up and placed in home recycling containers. When the trees are to large to fit, they can be placed beside the recycling for pick-up, so long as all of the ornaments, tinsel and decorations have been removed from it first. Check with your local waste disposal service to find out what Christmas tree disposal options are available in your area.
