I know we do not want to admit it, but the holiday season is over. Here’s the proof! It’s recycle your Christmas tree time.

In Los Angeles, the Bureau of Sanitation has curbside collection for Christmas trees. If your Christmas tree is too big to cut and place inside the green waste bin, simply place the tree next to your green waste bin on collection day.

Uh, please be sure to remove all decorations and the tree stand.

And, today only, from 9am to 4pm, you can drop off your Christmas tree at several fire stations and several drop-off sites from Griffith Park to Westchester. To find a location near you, check the website: http://www.lacitysan.org

    This woman has an attitude. She thinks she is all that. She might be nice, smiley and friendly on TV, but she is arrogant and obnoxious. She was at the Pasadena Convention wearing a pink rabbit outfit with a huge baby bottle. We thought it was cute but when I gave her the thumbs up, she gave me a funny look and turned away. My Company's Manager stated the same thing. She was not friendly and would just ignore you. Her attitude makes her an ugly person.
