With Christmas over, so begins the Christmas tree recycling season.

Beginning Tuesday in most areas of the county, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works confirmed residents can place natural Christmas trees curbside, next to the recycling and waste containers, on scheduled trash-collection days during the next two weeks or so.

Several drop-off sites are also available.
