The Solid Waste Management Department, Parks and Recreation, and PNM will recycle real Christmas Trees for FREE at three separate locations in Albuquerque beginning December 30, 2019. No artificial trees will be accepted. PNM Vegetation Management crews and Parks and Recreation staff will grind trees into mulch chips, which can then be used as mulch to provide a better growing environment for plants and residential landscapes. 

Trees may be dropped off between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday, December 30, through Sunday, January 12, 2020 at the following locations:

•Montessa Park Convenience Center, 3512 Los Picaros SE

•Eagle Rock Convenience Center, 6301 Eagle Rock NE

•Ladera Golf Course, Coors and Ladera NW

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.
