City Offers Christmas Tree Disposal Services

Christmas tree drop-off stations will be available to Burbank residents for one month beginning Dec 26.

Residents may drop off their holiday trees at the following locations:

• Ralph Foy Park, 3211 W. Victory Blvd.

• Verdugo Park, 3201 W. Verdugo Ave.

• McCambridge Park, 1515 N. Glenoaks Blvd.

Residents may set out their holiday trees for curbside pick-up on their regularly scheduled trash collection day at no additional cost beginning Jan. 8 through Jan 26. No curbside pick-up or drop-off stations will be available after Jan 26.

All ornaments, decorations and stands must be removed before setting it out for pick-up. Trees larger than six feet need to be cut into segments. Flocked trees are prohibited.

Alternatively, residents may cut their trees into pieces and dispose of the cuttings in green carts. Residents should remove all lights, ornaments, tinsel, garlands and stand.

String lights are e-waste and cannot go in your collection container. They can be dropped off at the Burbank Recycle Center’s Drop Zone collection area. Decorations can be donated or disposed into the trash.

Flocked items, artificial trees and wreaths are considered trash items that go in the black trash container. Flocked and artificial trees should be cut or modified to fit inside the cart with the lid closed.

Fake trees that come with string lights need to be removed or the entire tree can be dropped off for e-waste collection.

For information on what goes where, use the “Where it Goes” search tool: burbankca.gov/web/public-works/where-it-goes.
