Start the new year green by recycling your Christmas tree this week-end, January 7th And 8th from 10 am to 2 pm at Mulch Fest 2012. Just bring it to one of the designated neighborhood parks and the New York City Department of Parks And Recreation, the New York City Department of Sanitation, and GreeNYC 's will chip it into mulch that will nourish plants across the city.
The closest drop-off sites here in the neighborhood are:
Cobble Hill Park ,Verandah Place & Clinton Street
The Amazing Garden,Columbia Street at Carroll Street
and off course,
Prospect Park,Third Street at Prospect Park West
*You are encouraged to bring bags to take advantage of the free mulch provided at sites
And if you don't have time this week-end, don't worry. The NYC Department of Sanitation will also be conducting special curbside collections for mulching and recycling of Christmas trees from January 3 through January 14.
