Recycle Your Christmas Tree

From the City of Pasadena, William H. Boyer, Pasadena Public Information Officer, City Manager’s Office (626) 744-4755,wboyer@cityofpasadena.net:

HELP THE ENVIRONMENT BY RECYCLING YOUR CHRISTMAS TREE!

PASADENA, Calif.—Make tree recycling part of your holiday traditions!  Pasadena residents can help protect the environment by recycling their Christmas trees with two convenient services from the Pasadena Department of Public Works, including curbside pickup and two, designated, drive-up recycling stations.

Curbside pickup for Christmas trees will be available to Pasadena’s solid waste customers on their regularly scheduled collection days and routes beginning Thursday, January 2 through Friday, January 17, 2014.

Residents also can drop off their trees for recycling from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Thursday, December 26, 2013 through Friday, January 3, 2014 at the following locations:

  • Eaton Blanche Park, 3100 E. Del Mar Blvd., parking lot on Millicent Way
  • Robinson Park, 1081 N. Fair Oaks Ave., parking lot on Morton Street

No matter which recycling option you pick, please remember that stands, ornaments and lights must be removed from trees.  Flocked and fire retardant trees are OK, but no artificial trees will be accepted.

The Public Works Department turns the recycled trees into mulch for landscaping use instead of the trees going to the landfill.

For more information about the City’s recycling activities, call (626) 744-7311 or visitwww.cityofpasadena.net/publicworks.
