LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Los Angeles officials Wednesday reminded Angelenos of the city’s Christmas tree recycling program that helps residents properly dispose of their trees after the holidays.

To have a Christmas tree turned into compost and mulch at no cost, residents can chop their tree into smaller pieces and put them into their green bin.
