Mayor Encourages Adding Tree-Cycling To Your Holiday Traditions
2011-12-28 · By Editor
The City of Long Beach encourages residents to take advantage of the City’s tradition of free “tree-cycling” services during the holidays.
“Traditions are an important part of the holiday season, and I encourage residents to take advantage of this free service and make “tree-cycling” a part of their holiday tradition every year,” Mayor Bob Foster said.
Two types of “tree-cycling” services will be offered. Residents can choose to drop off trees at 12 City park locations beginning Monday, December 26 and extending through Friday, January 6. Trees left at these locations must have all decorations and stands removed prior to drop off. Residents may also choose to have their tree picked up curbside. This service will be provided on Saturday, January 7 for residents who have City of Long Beach refuse service. To have trees picked up curbside and recycled, trees must be placed at the curb by 7:00 AM, and all decorations and stands must be removed. Trees over 12 feet tall should be cut in half. Flocked trees will be accepted.
