With all the work that it takes to put up a Christmas tree, no one wants to think about taking it down. However, before you take that first ornament off the tree, think about how you intend to throw it away.
Culver City is offering free curbside pickup and will recycle your much beloved - but now no longer needed- Christmas tree.
If you have a curbside recycling service you can simply place your cut-up tree in the yard waste collection container. However, make sure to remove all ornaments, baubles and tinsel from the tree first. You can store those away for next year's tree.
If you live outside Culver City's borders, call the Los Angeles Christmas Tree Recycling hotline at 800 5-TREE-56, to find out where you can recycle your tree.
