Pasadena residents can help protect the environment by recycling their Christmas trees with services from the Pasadena Department of Public Works, including convenient curbside pickup and two designated, drive-up recycling stations.
The Pasadena Public Works Department is promoting this important holiday tradition of environmental stewardship in collaboration with the Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts.
Curbside pickup for Christmas trees will be available to Pasadena’s solid waste customers on their regularly scheduled collection days and routes beginning January 2 through January 18.
Residents also can drop off their trees for recycling from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., December 26 through January 4, at the following locations:
Eaton Blanche Park, 3100 E. Del Mar Blvd., parking lot on Millicent Way
Robinson Park, 1081 N. Fair Oaks Ave., parking lot on Morton Street
No matter which recycling option you pick, please remember that stands, ornaments and lights must be removed from trees. No artificial trees will be accepted.
