New Year's Day is one of the holidays that pushes city of Los Angeles trash collection back one day — take note this week. Service returns to the normal day next week. The only other holidays that cause trash pick-up to be delayed are the Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas. More at the Bureau of Sanitation website.

This year's drop-off day to recycle Christmas trees is Sunday, January 5. There are several options to recycle your tree through the city.
