ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – As holiday decorations get taken down, New Mexicans can help keep their Christmas tree out of the landfill by using the city’s “treecycling” service.
Starting December 30 through January 12, you can drop off up to five trees at the Montessa Park and Eagle Rock Convenience Centers, and at the Ladera Golf Course from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Solid Waste Management Director Matthew Whelan, Parks and Recreation Director Todd Fridley, and Vice President of Operations for PNM will launch the treecycling event on Monday, December 30 at 1 p.m. at the Eagle Rock Convenience Center.
The service is free, crews only require you remove tree stands, decorations and lights, so the stumps can easily be turned into mulch. Residents are limited to five trees.
Free mulch will be available while supplies last. For more details, you can head to the city’s website.
