Start The New Year "Green"; Recycle Your Xmas Tree


All right! So Christmas is over and your tree is starting to lose its needles. When you are ready to toss it out of your living room, you may want to recycle it at the Park Department's Mulch Fest. More info below.



TreeCycle! Take your tree to Mulchfest 2010!

Saturday & Sunday, Jan 9 & 10, 10am to 2pm

What's Mulchfest? Well, each January, Parks Department hosts a two-day event to chip Christmas trees around NYC. The event involves designated drop-off and chipping sites where people bring trees to be chipped and turned into mulch. Please remove lights and decorations!

Chipping Sites:
*Cobble Hill Park, Clinton St. & Verandah Pl.
*Prospect Park, Prospect Park West & 3rd St.

Drop-off Locations:
*Coffey Park, Dwight St. & Verona Pl.
*Red Hook Farm/Added Value, Columbia & Halleck Sts.

Mulch is available at chipping sites and at most drop-off locations.

Mulchfest is great particularly if you want to bring home mulch for your garden but for those who can't make it, NYC Sanitation is also picking up trees curbside for chipping and recycling from 1/4-1/15. See: http://www.nyc.gov/html/dsny/html/pr2009/122809.shtml
