Recycle Christmas trees in Burbank

Time to recycle those cut Christmas trees. By now most of those trees have lost their, ah, fresh look. You can drop your worn tree 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.

Trees will be recycled by being turned into mulch. So all tinsel, ornaments, and metal stands must be removed before you drop off the tree. By the way, flocked trees cannot be accepted.

Also, details on recycling trees in the green containers and at the curb or in alleys here. You can get more information by calling (818) 238-3800.
