Christmas Tree Mulchfest 2012

Posted on:



Chip in! Mulch your tree! Help NYC grow!

Bring your holiday tree to a designated city park to be recycled into mulch that will nourish plantings across the city!  The designated tree chipping site within Brooklyn’s Community District 14 is Prospect Park Circle at Parkside Avenue and Prospect Park Southwest. You can bring your tree to any chipping location throughout the five boroughs on January 7 and 8 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. For those with a green thumb, you can even take home your very own bag of mulch to use in your backyard garden or to make a winter bed for a street tree.

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. Leave your unwrapped, undecorated tree on the curb and the Department of Sanitation will arrange a pick-up by Saturday, January 14th.

Join the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation, the New York City Department of Sanitation, and GreeNYC in this citywide green effort! Last year, close to 17,000 Christmas trees were recycled. Please help us top this number!
