You drank the last of the spiked eggnog, your holiday candy supply seems to be dwindling, and Easter decorations are making their way into stores. One way to start 2013 on the right foot is to recycle your Christmas tree


  • If you live in Los Angeles County, you can get information about recycling your tree on this website. For additional questions, call Los Angeles County’s Environmental Hotline at 888-CLEAN LA.
  • Santa Monicans can bring their tree to one of four public parks during the month of January to be recycled. More information can be found here.
  • Are you in the faux tree camp? Choose a storage space, keep assembly instructions with the tree and place the tree in an artificial tree storage bag or plastic storage bins. Make it easy on yourself for next year and keep the tree decoration together with the tree as well.


Now that you’ve decided how to dispose of your Christmas tree in Los Angeles, it’s time to polish off those sugar cookies and make another pot of mulled wine.


With the holidays behind us and the arrival of a new year, it’s never been a better time to search for a new Los Angeles apartment for lease.
