Holiday Tree and Light Recycling
- Date: - (all day)
- Introduction: Holiday trees will be collected and recycled on residents' regular collection day from December 26, 2018 - January 12, 2019. Unwanted holiday lights can be collected from the curb as part of the e-waste collection program (call WM customer service to schedule an e-waste pick-up).
Holiday Tree Recycling
Waste Management will collect and recycle holiday trees. Between December 26, 2018 and January 12, 2019, residents may place trees next to their carts before 7:30 AM on their regular collection date for free pick-up and recycling. Trees must be less than 7 feet long or cut into 7-foot sections (neither Waste Management nor City employees can cut trees for residents). Please remove all lights, decorations, tinsel, ornaments, and metal stands. Flocked trees will be collected at the curb but cannot be recycled.
Holiday Light Recycling
Holiday lights are considered E-waste. E-waste can be collected by Waste Management at the curb for free by appointment. Please contact Waste Management Customer Service at (310) 830-7100 to schedule an E-waste pick up. Collection is performed by a separate truck, typically on the residents regular collection day.

Additional Refuse Collection
Waste Management will collect any additional trash and recycling materials that do not fit in a resident’s carts for two weeks following Christmas Day. This allowance was designed to assist residents with the refuse overflow which naturally happens during the holiday season. Extra materials should be placed in bags, adjacent to the container they represent (extra bags of trash next to trash cart, extra bags of recycling next to recycling cart, etc.). All boxes should still be broken down. Bulky items such as furniture or appliances need to be scheduled for pick up by contacting WM Customer Service at (310) 830-7100.
