From 10a.m. until 2p.m. this weekend (Saturday, January 7 and Sunday, January 8), there will be several chipping locations throughout the five boroughs you can take your tree to turn it into nourishing mulch.
Put on your boots and haul your tree to a Mulchfest location — we’ll chip your tree into wood chips that we’ll use to nourish trees and make NYC even greener. More than 50,600 trees were recycled last year. Help us top this number!
Those who bring their tree to get chipped will also receive a “tree-mento”–your very own bag of mulch to use in your backyard or to make a winter bed for a street tree.
You can drop off your trees at any location through Sunday, January 8, or you can bring it to one of the “Chipping Weekend” events on Saturday, January 7 and Sunday, January 8 to see the grinding in action for yourself!
The annual MulchFest is created in partnership between NYC Parks and the New York City Department of Sanitation.
Help out the community and start off your 2023 a bit greener!
Please note: Please remember to remove all lights, ornaments, and netting before bringing your tree to a Mulchfest site!
