The 2021 Christmas Tree Recycling Program dates will be announced in December 2021. Christmas Day (December 25) and New Year's Day (January 1) are observed as holidays and the holiday trash collection schedule can be found HERE.

Program details: 

  • Trees are collected with your regular weekly trash collection. (Note: The holiday trash delay applies to tree collection.) 
  • Remove all ornaments, tinsel and the tree stand. Trees taller than 6 feet must be cut in half.
  • On collection day, place your tree on the ground next to your trash containers.
  • Trees are taken to CR&R's Anaerobic Digestion Facility to be converted into renewable natural gas, which is used to fuel CR&R's collection fleet, and nutrient-rich compost that is distributed to residents at our annual Compost Giveaway event.

For inquiries or missed pickups, please contact CR&R at (949) 646-4617, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., or submit an online request.
