LANCASTER — Waste Management of Antelope Valley is inviting local residents to recycle their Christmas trees through the company’s curbside tree collection program.
“The holiday season is all about giving, which is why we’re asking residents to give back to the planet this year by recycling their trees,” stated Josh Mann of Waste Management. “After they have been used to brighten up any holiday celebration, Christmas trees can be recycled and given back to nature in the form of mulch. We’re asking that everyone make their festivities a little greener by doing their part.”
Waste Management will collect trees for residents in Palmdale, Lancaster, Quartz Hill and California City, from Dec. 28 through Jan. 8 on customers’ scheduled collection days.
