How to Recycle Your Christmas Tree

Locals can keep trees up for the season and Armenian Christmas until January 19.

Montrose and La Crescenta residents can dispose of their Christmas trees each trash collection day through January 19. 

The City of Glendale Christmas Tree Program recycles all trees without ornaments, stands or nails. The program requires that trees larger than 8 feet are cut in half. 

Residents of unincorporated La Crescenta and Montrose can recycle trees by leaving them curbside. The trees collected will be recycled and used as compost, mulch, or ground cover, which reduces the production of landfill waste and preserves natural resources, county officials said. 

All ornaments, including tinsel, decorations, and metal and plastic tree stands must be removed. Trees over six feet should be cut in half. Those who miss their curbside recycling dates should cut their trees into smaller pieces and place them in a green waste container. 

Locals living in apartments can speak to landlords or building managers about placing the tree next to garbage bins on the day of trash pick up.  

Glendale business owners can arrange pick ups with the city recycling program by calling (818) 548-3916.   

Locals can visit the Public Works site for more information about recycling trees.
