Christmas Tree and Cardboard Recycling

Republic Services is offering free post-holiday recycling of live Christmas trees and cardboard cartons. Republic Services will pick up Christmas trees and any flattened cardboard cartons that are placed next to the trees from December 26 through January 11, 2019. To recycle your tree, simply remove all ornaments, hooks, light strings, tinsel, and stand, and place it next to your carts on your trash day. Flatten cardboard and place next to trees. The automated trucks are not collecting trees, so please do not block access to the carts and do not put your Christmas tree in your carts. Larger trees should be cut to six-foot maximum. Multi-family, condo and townhome residents with commercial service (blue dumpster) should place trees to the side of the dumpsters, not in front or on top of the dumpster. Check with your property manager or HOA for other restrictions.

After January 11, tree pickups will have to be scheduled as a 10/4 Pickup arranged directly through Republic Services. For further information, please contact Public Works Trash and Recycling at 714-375-5010 or Republic Services at 714-847-3581.

Reminder: To avoid a missed trash pick-up, set your trash and recycling carts out by 7:00 a.m. on trash day. Route schedules are subject to change at any time.

A home solar panel system consists of several solar panels, an inverter, a battery, a charge regulator, wiring, and support materials. Sunlight is absorbed by the solar panels and is converted to electricity by the installed system. The battery stores electricity that can be used at a later time, like cloudy days or during the evening.  Learn more about solar.
