|We loved our tiny "tree"! (It was our first.) I'll miss it, but am glad it can go back into the circle of life.|
This year, MulchFest will take place this weekend: Saturday January 7 and Sunday January 8. It’s easier than ever to chip in! There are two ways you can help. You can bring your tree to a chipping location on January 7 and 8 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The Parks Dept will chip your tree, and give you your very own bag of mulch!
If you can't make it, you can bring your tree to a drop-off site from January 2 through January 8. Leave your tree and they'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 January 3 through January 14.
