Palm fronds trimmed from trees at L.A. homes and on private property can be recycled in L.A.'s green waste bin.
The seeds from the palm head (the fleshy rind and hard kernel) are not recyclable in the green bin; they are trash and should be placed in the black bin. The city's mulching equipment is not able to grind the seeds adequately to prevent them from germinating and growing into new palm trees.

L.A.: Yes, in the green bin

Santa Ana: No
