City will recycle trees

DOWNEY - CalMet Services, the city's franchised refuse hauler, will collect Christmas trees for recycling Dec. 26 until Jan. 16.Residents who receive automated curbside trash collection - usually single-family homes - may place their trees on the curb on their regular trash collection day. Apartment residents and businesses should call CalMet at (562) 259-1239 to schedule a pick-up date. However, trees must be set out at the curb and not by their trash bins. All trees must be free of decorations and stands, and should not be in a bag. Flocked trees are OK. Christmas trees can also be dropped off at the city's public works yard at 12324 Bellflower Blvd., behind Independence Park.
