After a merry Christmas, it’s time to start thinking about what to do with your tree. What should you do? You should Treecycle it at MulchFest!
On Saturday, January 12 and Sunday, January 13, NYC Parks Sanitation and GreenNYC will host the annual MulchFest from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. 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, be one of thousands of New York households to help the environment and the community by bringing your tree to our nearest collection site. There will be 35 chipping sites and 45 drop-off sites throughout the five boroughs. And this year, you can bring your tree to a drop-off site starting January 9 and running through the 13th.
It’s easier than ever! Remember to remove all lights and decorations before bringing the tree to a MulchFest site.
Check out the MulchFest video:
Patrons are encouraged to take advantage of the free mulch available at each chipping site. Free mulch collection bags are provided for your convenience.
Please visit our MulchFest page to find out more information about MulchFest and a list of sites in your borough. MulchFest is supported again this year by Hot 97 and Cabot Cheese.
Treecycle and help NYC grow!
