Recycle your Christmas trees into wood chips that will nourish trees and plants on NYC streets, gardens and parks at MulchFest 2016.. Give your tree back to the land, instead of adding it to the landfill.
There are giant chippers in NYC parks in all five boroughs waiting for your holiday tree. You can watch – it’s a great recycling lesson for the kids – and even take home a bag of chips for your own backyard garden or sidewalk tree.
MulchFest 2016 is next weekend, Saturday and Sunday, Jan 9 and 10, from 10am to 2pm. Click here for the NYC Parks Dept. list of mulching sites.,
The NYC Department of Sanitation will also be conducting special curbside collections for mulching and recycling of Christmas trees from Monday, January 4, 2016 through Friday, January 15, 2016.
Whether you mulch your tree or leave it for trash, be sure to remove ornaments and lights. It can’t be, otherwise it can’t be chipped. Also be sure to remove ornaments even if you are leaving your holiday tree on the sidewalk for Dept. of Sanitation pick-up. Special tree pick-ups are daily through Sunday, January 11th.
