Need to get rid of your Christmas Tree after the holiday season? The Sandoval County Landfill is participating in a Tree-cycling event until Jan. 9. Be sure to remove stands and decorations from your tree before taking to the landfill.
Christmas Tree-cycling in Rio Rancho from December 26 through January 9. Residents are urged to return Christmas trees back to the environment by recycling. Mulch generated from Christmas trees can be used to provide a better growing environment for plants, city parks, and home landscapes. Mulch helps retain moisture in soil, acts as an insulating blanket to protect soil against extreme temperatures, and reduces w**d growth. Recycling Christmas trees allows the tree to complete its natural life cycle by nurturing soil so other living things can grow.
