WESTERN WASTE ENCOURAGES THE SOUTH BAY TO RECYCLE CHRISTMAS TREES

 LOS ANGELES, Dec. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Western Waste will be conducting its annual Christmas tree recycling program throughout Southern California, diverting approximately 400 tons of trees from overcrowded landfills into compost and recycled products.
 Residents and businesses in participating South Bay area cities may either leave their unflocked, unadorned Christmas trees at curbside or bring them to Western Waste's Greencyclery in Carson, 321 W. Francisco St., from Dec. 29 through Jan. 9.
 Those who bring their tree to the Greencyclery, along with a recycling or similar size container, are entitled to free mulch, a by-product of the recycled evergreens.
 Curbside pick-up of Christmas trees will be conducted Jan. 4-8 in Gardena, Inglewood, Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach and South Gate; Dec. 28-Jan. 2 in Carson; Jan. 4-9 in Huntington Park.
 Residents and businesses in Lawndale and Lynwood may bring their trees to a designated drop-off site Dec. 26-Jan. 9. The cities' respective recycling coordinator should be contacted for specific locations. Alternatively, residents may place their trees at curbside on their regular collection day during this period, and clean trees will be recycled at Western Waste's Greencyclery.
 "Western Waste is proud of the program's growing success," said Kosti Shirvanian, the company's president and chief executive officer. "The South Bay area's participation will help us collect an estimated 65,000 trees in Southern California this holiday season. Turning these trees into a reusable product like mulch makes much more sense environmentally than having them take up valuable space in our landfills."
 Christmas tree recycling is among Western Waste's "Green Waste" programs, geared to benefit the environment and enable cities to meet California's stringent waste reduction mandates, Shirvanian noted.
 Western Waste Industries is a leading integrated solid waste management company, providing collection, recycling, green waste and disposal services for commercial, industrial and residential customers. The company has locations in California, Texas, Florida, Arkansas, Louisiana and Colorado.
