From December 26, 2021 through January 7, 2022, Republic Services will recycle non-artificial Christmas trees placed at the curb of single family residences on your regular collection day in Huntington Beach and Fountain Valley. Collected trees are shredded into ground cover material and mulch to avoid disposal at the landfill. Trees taller than six (6) feet should be cut in half and have all lights and ornaments removed. Please place trees and cardboard next to your containers on your trash collection day by 7 a.m. Flocked trees cannot be recycled and need to be cut into smaller pieces and placed in the trash. (Large multifamily communities can call for a special pick up during this timeframe by calling (657) 845-6095.)Remember to recycle…or better yet, reuse your holiday wrapping.
