Yeah, it’s sad, but the Christmas trees have come down, and now what do you do with them?

If you haven’t heard about this Free Christmas Tree Recycling service from the City of Albuquerque and Public Service Company of New Mexico, you’ve got a couple more days to dispose of your tree for free, and recycle to save landfill space.

The Christmas Treecycling – ha ha! –┬áis available through Sunday January 9, 2011. Drop your tree off between 8 am and 5 pm, at the locations below. Note that this is only for residential customers – if you’re an Albuquerque business you’ve gotta make other plans.

Each person can drop off up to five Christmas trees – Five? Do they think I live in a palace? But I guess you can team up with neighbors and one person drop off several trees – save gas as well as recyling trees to save landfill space.

Plus, as the Christmas trees are chipped at each location, you can also take away free tree chippings to use as mulch. Sweet!
