It’s time for the take down for that once fresh Christmas tree. The holidays are behind us and that Christmas tree will soon become a hazard. Last Friday, the curb side recycling of Christmas trees began in Burbank. Public Works crews will pick up the trees and recycle them. The trees may be left  in alleys as well. However, metal stands must be removed along with all decorations like tinsel, and ornaments.  No flocked trees.

Also, trees can be dropped off at three Burbank parks; Verdugo Park at North California Street and West Verdugo Avenue, Ralph Foy Park in the parking lot on West Victory Boulevard, and McCambridge Park in the parking lot on Andover Drive. The trees will be turned into mulch or compost . Program runs through January 23.

A third option is to cut up the bare tree and put it in the green trash container.  For more information go here or call (818) 238-3800.
