The Solid Waste Management Department, Parks and Recreation, and PNM will recycle Christmas Trees for FREE at three separate locations in Albuquerque beginning January 2, 2019. No artificial trees will be accepted.

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.

Trees may be dropped off between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Tuesday, January 2 through Sunday, January 13, 2019 at:

  • Montessa Park Convenience Center, 3512 Los Picaros SE, 873-6607
  • 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 off to be mulched. Limit 5 trees per resident, no commercial customers.
