County Environmental Services To Collect Christmas Trees Jan. 3-7 And Jan. 18-21 On Regular Trash Collection Days


The Los Alamos County Environmental Services Division will collect Christmas trees on the week of Jan. 3 – 7 and the week of Jan. 18 – 21. Environmental Services’ staff remind Los Alamos residents to set trees on the curb on their regularly scheduled trash collection day during one of the Christmas tree collection weeks. All lights and ornaments must be removed prior to collection. No artificial trees will be accepted. The collected trees will be processed into mulch and compost. If residents miss these dates, they may take their tree to the Eco Station or Overlook Collection for free or call the Eco Station at (50) 662-8163 for a special brush collection for $25.
