Christmas TreesChristmas TreeChristmas tree recycling begins the day after Christmas and continues for two weeks. Remove all tinsel, stands, garland, etc., and place the tree beside your grey recycling cart.

Christmas trees may also be taken to one of the two TreeCycle bins during those same two weeks located on Marquette Street and Park Crest Lane.  Note that these bins cannot take trees treated with fire retardant (such trees must be disposed of in the trash). 

Or, you can take your tree to the:

Simi Valley Landfill
2801 Madera Road
Simi Valley, CA 93065

Moorpark residents may also place extra garbage in bags (up to 3) alongside their solid waste carts for two collection days, or two weeks, after Christmas.

Propane TanksPropane Tank
Amerigas Propane(Free, 315 Montgomery Ave., Oxnard)

Propane Tank Exchange

If you run out of propane and need a new tank before your next cookout, don’t worry! Visit Blue Rhino's Propane Finder or Amerigas Retail locator to find the nearest retailers. Just drop, swap, and go when you need a fresh tank! (Yeah, it’s that easy.) Not only is it saving the environment by generating less waste, but it also saves you cash! After all, it’s a lot cheaper to exchange a tank than buy a new one.

Recycle Your Propane Tank

Since there’s a possibility of propane left in the tank, many landfills, recycling centers, and scrap metal dealers will not accept unwanted tanks for recycling. However, some propane exchange companies, including Blue Rhino and AmeriGas, will happily take your unused propane cylinders and recycle them at no cost to you. If you have a propane tank that you don’t want, place your old tank beside a propane tank display and they will take care of the rest.
