Now that Christmas is over, don't trash that tree: recycle it at Mulchfest!
Saturday, Jan. 9 &
Sunday, Jan. 10
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! Remember to remove all lights and ornaments before bringing the tree to a MulchFest site. Bring your own bag if you would like to take home fresh mulch for your yard, garden or street tree.
Check the list of Citywide locations for one near you.
Department of Sanitation Tree Pick-Ups
If you can't make it to MulchFest, DSNY will conduct Christmas tree collection from Monday, January 4, 2010 through Friday, January 15. Simply place your tree on the curb free of ornaments, stands and plastic bags.
(NOTE: these dates may change, so call 311 or check back here early January).
