Recycle Your Tree after the Holidays
Holiday trees are 100% recyclable. Athens Services collects holiday trees each year. They will be collecting trees in San Gabriel from Monday, January 2 to Friday, January 13, 2023. Trees are delivered to various landfills to be used as mulch, or to Athens’ American Organics compost facility in Victorville.
Tips to ensure your tree is properly collected:
• Remove stands, ornaments, lights and tinsel.
• Place holiday trees next to your regular trash containers.
• Trees over 6 feet in length must be cut in half.
• Trees with flocking or fire retardants ARE NOT acceptable.
• If you miss the date for recycling, please cut up your tree and place it in your yard waste container(s).
Please help keep our parks clean and safe during the holidays. If you see any illegal dumping activity, please report it as a bulky item pick-up to Athens Services at AthensServices.com. If you spot any active dumping activity, please contact the San Gabriel Police Department’s non-emergency line at (626) 308-2828.
