City of Los Angeles trash bins in Northridge. LA Observed file photo
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.
