The festivities are over and the tree has started to drop its needles. When it comes time to recycle your seasonal icon, where do you turn? Just Sprinklers will pick up your tree from January 2 to January 6, 2013. January 2 is also the starting date for drop off at one of the city's solid waste disposal sites. Rio Rancho and Los Lunas have locations as well for recycling your tree. Some of the programs turn the waste into mulch that can then be used in gardens. The mulch is available on a first come, first served basis at the Rio Rancho location as well as the three Albuquerque solid waste dropoff points.
