CHRISTMAS TREE RECYCLING: Christmas Tree Recycling

Do You Part By Recycling Your Christmas Tree
Walnut residents may easily recycle their live holiday trees by using the free Curbside Christmas Tree Recycling Program offered now directly through Valley Vista Services. Flocked or fire retardant trees will be accepted.
Valley Vista Services will pick up your Christmas tree at curbside on your regular trash day; if you follow these rules:. 

All trees must have the following items removed:

• Plastic or metal watering containers
• Plastic or metal stands
• Ornaments and other decorations
• The majority of Tinsel 

After this special service has ended, trees placed out for pick up must fit into your regular green waste container (with the lid closed). Call Valley Vista Services at 800-442-6454 for more information.

COMMERCIAL RECYCLING 
AB 341 requires that local governments must implement, and businesses must comply with, a mandatory commercial solid waste recycling program, or its equivalent. On 12/14/11, the Walnut City Council adopted a Commercial and Construction Debris Processing Program with its exclusive franchise waste hauler, Valley Vista Services. This program is considered to be the equivalent of mandatory commercial recycling in that all solid waste generated by businesses, multifamily units and construction activities will be collected by Valley Vista Services, using existing trash enclosures and bins, and processed through a mixed waste materials recovery facility. This eliminates the need to modify existing bin enclosures to accommodate separate recycling bins and train employees on recycling requirements. As required by AB 341, the City and Valley Vista Services will track, monitor and report to the State on program effectiveness and diversion data. 

Commercial businesses may choose to conduct their own source separation activities and either self-haul to a recycling center or contract for pick up with a source-specific recycling company. Such activities may enable businesses to reduce their solid waste trash collection costs by reducing their bin size(s) and/or frequency of trash pick up, It is an existing right of businesses to donate or sell their recyclable material. Valley Vista Services is available to help businesses start source separation activities.
