The Riverside County Waste Management Department is collecting Christmas trees at county landfills and provide them for fish habitat. The trees will be dropped into local lakes and waterways so that juvenile fish have a more protection from larger predatory fish.
Other Christmas trees that are recycled, at free drop-off sites or at the curb, will be taken to local green waste processors to be recycled into compost or mulch products.
There are several drop-off locations that will accept residential trees for free until January 11th:
