Tree and Light Recycling

Happy New Year Neighbors!

We hope you and yours have had a safe and happy holiday season.   To start off the new year, the city is offering free tree recycling (and free wood chips) – one location is right down the street at Ladera Golf Course!  (You can also recycle your lights.)  Here are the details:

The Solid Waste Management Department, Parks and Recreation and PNM will recycle Christmas Trees and Christmas Lights for FREE at three separate locations in Albuquerque beginning January 2, 2015.

PNM Vegetation Management crews and Parks and Recreation staff will grind trees into chips, which can then be used as mulch to provide a better growing environment for plants and landscapes. Residents can pick up the freshly ground wood chips for use in their home landscapes free of charge while supplies last.

After dropping off their Christmas tree, residents may deposit their Christmas tree lights into marked containers for recycling. Christmas tree lights should never be placed into the blue recycling carts that residents use at their homes.

Trees and lights may be dropped off between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Friday, January 2 through Sunday, January 11, 2015 at:
•Montessa Park Convenience Center, 3512 Los Picaros SE, 873-660
•Eagle Rock Convenience Center, 6301 Eagle Rock NE, 857-8318
•Ladera Golf Course, Coors and Ladera NW, 888-8115

Please remove all bags, tree stands, decorations and lights from trees before dropping them off to be mulched. Limit 5 trees per resident, no commercial customers.
