Valley residents are urged by the city of Los Angeles to recycle their Christmas trees at one of several local drop-off sites. “The results are the conservation of limited landfill space and the recycling of green renewable resources,” said Cynthia Ruiz, president of the Board of Public Works. “Mayor (Antonio) Villaraigosa and the city are very appreciative that every year, more members of the public take responsibility to recycle their trees and take a pro-active role in making Los Angeles cleaner, greener and safer.” Residents with city-issued green yard-trimming bins can cut up their trees and place them in the bins for pickup by the Bureau of Sanitation.
