The City of Malibu’s annual Christmas tree recycling is available for free beginning Dec. 26 and running through Jan. 12.
The lot, where residents can drop off trees that have had water containers, ornaments, tinsel, metal tree stands and lights removed, is open from 7:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday until Jan. 12 (lot closes at 11 a.m. Dec. 31). The tree drop-off is located at 23575 Civic Center Way—the Chili Cook-Off lot.
Residents who have given or received gifts packed in polystyrene foam—better known as styrofoam—have the opportunity to recycle the packing material into surfboards, with a collection going on from Dec. 26-Jan. 12.
Polystyrene packing material is accepted for drop-off at Malibu City Hall’s upper parking lot as part of “Waste to Waves.” No food containers or packing peanuts will be accepted. Drop off foam in the bin behind City Hall, located at 23825 Stuart Ranch Road.
