Saturday, January 9th and Sunday, January 10th, the New York City Parks Department will host the annual MulchFest from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. each day at locations citywide. Bring your holiday tree to one of 80+ designated parks to be recycled into mulch that will nourish plantings across the city or your own garden! This year, we hope to encourage thousands of New York households to help the environment and the community by bringing their trees to our nearest collection site – there will be over 30 chipping sites and about 50 drop-off sites throughout the five boroughs.
Remember to remove all lights and decorations before bringing the tree to a MulchFest site. You will have the opportunity to take home your mulch at designated chipping sites.
