 Christmas Tree Recycling Program

The City of LA Bureau of Sanitation has expanded curbside collection for Christmas trees. All trees will be recycled into compost and mulch. If your Christmas tree is too big to cut and place inside the green waste bin, simply place the tree next to your green waste bin on collection day. If you are using your green bin to recycle your tree, you must cut the tree in pieces to fit into the green bin and place all the pieces in the green bin for regular pick up on collection day.

Residents of multifamily buildings are requested to place their Christmas trees at the curbside on the day on their regular day of collection.

Recreation and Parks and Fire Station locations (see Northeast locations below) will also accept Christmas trees for ONE DAY ONLY on Sunday, January 8th from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. There will be NO giveaways and holiday wrapping and packing material will NOT be accepted at the sites.  




Please remove all ornaments, decorations, tinsel, and the stand from all trees.

Take Back the Boulevard 2nd Community Meeting

Thursday, January 19th

7:00pm – 9:00pm

Center for the Arts – Eagle Rock

2225 Colorado Blvd.

Los Angeles, CA 90041

 Take Back the Boulevard, in partnership with Councilmember Jose Huizar, invite you to attend the 2nd community meeting for this initiative to revitalize Colorado Boulevard in Eagle Rock. We strongly encourage one and all to join us and continue building a community vision for how Colorado Boulevard can better serve the residents and businesses of Eagle Rock. Your voice is important and a key to the success of this important project. The first community meeting in September was a very well-attended success, our online survey was completed by hundreds of community members, and now we need your help to begin to define a plan that builds on that foundation of public input.

The Take Back the Boulevard initiative seeks to utilize broad community feedback and involvement to make Colorado Boulevard — a central corridor through Eagle Rock — a safe, sustainable, and vibrant street in order to stimulate economic growth, increase public safety, and enhance community pride and wellness.

For more information, visit or contact CD 14 Northeast Office at 323-254-5295.
