Christmas tree recycling program has been very positive.  Old Christmas trees are not picked up during regular trash collection and require a bit of extra help.

Pine trees, which are most commonly used to celebrate Christmas, take years to decompose and should not be tossed into vacant lots or placed outside with household garbage.

Last year, over 100 trees were dropped off at the offices of Ecology, located at the Cenote Park, on Avenida 65 between Calle 31 y 33.   It’s not too late to add your tree to this year’s recycle collection.  Donations are accepted between the hours of 8 AM – 3 PM.

árboles de Navidad establecido por la Dirección Municipal de Ecología. El servicio regular de recolecta de basura no recogerá los viejos árboles navideños y requieren un poco de ayuda.

Los pinos, que son los árboles que generalmente se usan para celebrar la Navidad, tardan muchos años en descomponerse y no deben tirarse en lotes baldíos o colocarse afuera con la basura regular.

El año pasado las oficinas de Ecología, ubicadas en el parque del Cenote sobre Avenida 65 entre calles 31 y 33, recibieron más de 100 árboles. No es tarde para que agregue su árbol en la recolección de reciclaje de este año. Se aceptan donativos entre las 8 a.m. y 3 pm
