MULCHFEST NYC: Recycle Your Christmas Tree January 8 & 9, 2011!

Chip in! Mulch your tree! Help NYC grow!

<!–Saturday, January 9 and Sunday, January 10, 2010

10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

–>Bring your holiday tree to a designated city park to be recycled into mulch that will nourish plantings across the city!

Join the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation , the New York City Department of Sanitation, and GreeNYC to recycle your Christmas trees into wood chips. These wood chips are used to nourish trees and plants on streets and gardens citywide. Or, take home your very own bag of mulch to use in your backyard or to make a winter bed for a street tree .

Last year, close to 24,000 Christmas trees citywide were recycled. Please help us top this number!

This year, MulchFest will take place on January 8 and 9, 2011. Parks will host 35 chipping sites and 35 additional drop-off locations: 70 sites in all! Link:

Please remember to remove all lights and ornaments before bringing the tree to a MulchFest site. Biodegradable bags will be provided if you wish to take some free mulch home. Mulch is available at the sites marked with an asterisk (*) below.
