Recycle Your Christmas Tree
La Mirada residents can recycle live holiday trees through the free curbside Christmas Recycling Program. Trees can be recycled through Friday, January 18. Residents may place their Christmas trees curbside on their normal trash pick-up days. Flocked trees will also be accepted. Residents living in multi-family communities without curbside refuse service may drop off their Christmas trees at the La Mirada Community Gymnasium, located at 15105 Alicante Road.
To be recycled, trees must have the following items removed:
- All ornaments, tinsel, lights, and nails
- Plastic or metal watering containers
- Plastic or metal tree stands
- Plastic bags
- Trees should be cut in six-foot segments
