Christmas tree recycling through Jan. 8
Monrovia’s trash hauler Athens Services will pick up Christmas trees through Sunday, city officials said.
To participate in the program, simply place your used Christmas tree curbside on your regular trash collection day.
“Of course, if you could please remove all ornaments, tinsel, plastic bags, nails, lights, and plastic/metal stands, it would be much appreciated,” a note to residents from City Manager Oliver Chi indicated.
Flocked trees and trees coated with fire retardant will also be accepted! If you have any questions about this program, or if you would like more information, call the Monrovia city Public Works Division at (626) 932-5575, or Athens Services at (888) 336-6100.
