Rainbow Environmental Services is offering free post-holiday recycling of live Christmas trees and cardboard cartons. Rainbow will pick-up Christmas trees and any flattened cardboard cartons that are placed next to the trees from December 26 through January 11, 2019.
To recycle your tree, simply remove all ornaments, hooks, light strings, tinsel, and stand, and place it next to your bins on your trash day. Flatten cardboard and place next to trees. The automated trucks are not collecting trees, so please do not block access to the carts and do not put your Christmas tree in your bins. Larger trees should be cut to six-foot maximum. Multi-family, condo and townhome residents with commercial service (blue dumpster) should place trees to the side of the dumpsters, not in front or on top of the dumpster. Check with your property manager or HOA for other restrictions.
After January 11, tree pickups will have to be arranged directly through Rainbow Environmental. For further information, please contact Public Works Trash and Recycling at 714-375-5010 or Rainbow Environmental Services at 714-847-3581.
