Boughs into Bins

Spotted on many Hancock Park streets suddenly: the abandoned Christmas tree, sans twinkly lights and shiny ornaments.

The City of LA Bureau of Sanitation has expanded CURBSIDE collection for Christmas trees. If your Christmas tree is too big to cut and place it inside the green waste bin (the preferred mode of recycling it)  simply place the tree next to your green waste bin on collection day. All ornaments, tinsel, lights, and the stand must be removed.

Or if you can’t wait that long, you can drop it off at Fire Station #29, corner of Wilshire Blvd. and Van Ness Ave. They already have their big waste bin onsite and encourage you to throw your tree in it. Last day for unloading on them is this Sunday, January 8, 2012.
