Christmas Tree Recycling

Downey residents receiving automated curbside trash collection service may place their holiday trees curbside on their regular trash day. Collection of trees will run from December 26 through January 12.

Here are a few reminders before placing your tree out

  • All tree stands must be removed
  • All decorations must be removed
  • Trees over four feet should be cut in half
  • Do NOT place your tree in a bag
  • Flocked trees are OK

Commercial accounts (businesses and apartments) may call CalMet at 562-259-1239 ext. 4 for FREE pick-up of holiday trees. However, trees must be set out at the curb, not by trash bins.

Residents and businesses may also bring holiday trees to a Tree Drop-off Bin at the city’s Public Works Yard parking lot. The drop-off bin will be available from December 27 through January 12.  The Public Works yard is located at 12324 Bellflower Blvd.
