Christmas Tree Recycling & Extra Garbage Collection



Christmas TreeCycle BinChristmas tree recycling begins the day after Christmas and continues for two weeks. Remove all tinsel, stands, garland, etc., and simply place the tree beside your grey recycling cart.

Christmas trees may also be taken to one of the two TreeCycle bins during those same two weeks which are located on Marquette Street and Park Crest Lane.  Note that these bins cannot take trees treated with fire retardant (such threes must be disposed of in the trash). 

Or, you can take your tree to the:

     Simi Valley Landfill
     2801 Madera Road
     Simi Valley, CA 93065

Moorpark residents may also place extra garbage in bags (up to 4) alongside their solid waste carts on the first trash collection day after Christmas.
