Recycle your Christmas Tree and Reduce, Reuse and Recycle in 2014

The City of Santa Fe, Santa Fe County, and Santa Fe Solid Waste Management Agency will be accepting Christmas trees for mulching free of charge. Starting on December 30, 2013 and continuing until January 24, 2014, all residents in the City and County of Santa Fe can drop off their un-flocked/artificial snow and de-ornamented tree at the following locations:

When: December 30, 2013 to January 24, 2014

Where:

Buckman Road Recycling and Transfer Station (BuRRT)

            2600 Buckman Road

Eldorado, Jacona, and Stanley County Transfer Stations

Newman’s Nursery

7501 Cerrillos Road

Payne’s Nurseries:

304 Camino Alire

715 St. Michael’s Drive

Franklin Miles Park

Camino Carlos Rey and Siringo Road

Frank S. Ortiz Park

            160 Camino De Las Crucitas,

Please be sure that all ornaments, tinsel and lights are removed from the tree. Flocked trees (trees sprayed with artificial snow) are not accepted because the chemicals will contaminate the mulch. The mulch from the City will be used in the parks for landscape and erosion control and will be available free to the public in the Franklin Miles Park parking lot. The trees collected at County transfer stations will be taken to BuRRT for chipping.

Make 2014 the year to reduce, reuse and recycle as much as you can. City residential curbside customers can recycle at no additional cost and can drop by 1142 Siler Road, Building A to pick up free recycling bins. At least 50% of curbside residential customers recycle now. Let’s take that number up to 100%.
