WEST HOLLYWOOD — The City’s solid waste hauler, Athens Services, will not pick up of trash on Christmas Day, Wednesday, December 25th, 2019 and New Year’s Day, Wednesday, January 1st, 2020. Services will be provided one day later than the regular scheduled pickup day. Holiday trees are 100% recyclable! 

Athens Services will collect holiday trees on normal pickup days beginning Thursday, December 26th, 2019 through Saturday, January 11th, 2020.

Tips to ensure successful collection of your Holiday Tree: remove stands, ornaments, lights and tinsel; place holiday trees at the curb; trees over six feet in length must be cut in half; trees with flocking or fire retardants are acceptable; and please do not leave the tree in a plastic bag as the bag gets caught in the chipper blades.

Remember that gift boxes, wrapping paper, and other paper packaging can be recycled with your regular paper and cardboard recycling. During the holidays, many people get rid of outdated electronics. Residents should take old electronics to a collection center such as Goodwill or the UCLA S.A.F.E. Drop-Off Center.

Bulky or large items, such as refrigerators, carpet, and wood, can be picked up at no charge to residents, limited to one or two items. Please call Athens Services directly to find out details and arrange for a pickup.

If you will be generating a larger amount of trash than you normally do and your trash and recycling bins or carts are full, do not place your extra trash and recycling on the ground with your bins and or carts. Please contact Athens Services to schedule extra services to accommodate your extra trash and recycling.

For more information, or to arrange for extra trash and recycling services, contact Athens Services’ Customer Service Office at (888) 336-6100. For details, please visit weho.org.
