MulchFest 2014: Recycle your holiday tree!
Curbside Pick Up: through Wed., Jan. 15, 2014
How to ‘Chip In.’
MulchFest 2014 has ended.
The event took place on January 11 and 12, 2014. Don’t forget to “chip in” next year!
Chipping Locations: Sat. & Sun., Jan. 11 & 12, 2014, 10 AM – 2 PM
Drop-Off Locations: Sat., Jan. 4 – Sun., Jan. 12 (Hours vary by location)
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. More than 26,000 trees were recycled last year. Help us top this number! For more information, click the link below.
You can bring your tree to a chipping location on January 11 and 12 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. We’ll chip your tree, and give you your very own bag of mulch!
Drop Off Locations
MulchFest 2014 has ended. You can bring your tree to a drop-off site from Saturday, January 4 through Sunday, January 12. Leave your tree with us, and we’ll recycle it for you later!
The NYC Department of Sanitation will also be conducting special curbside collections for mulching and recycling of Christmas trees from Monday, December 30, 2013 through Wednesday, January 15, 2014.
What to Bring
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 (*) on the list at the bottom of this webpage.
