Hopefully you haven’t thrown your Christmas tree to the curb just yet. Assuming you’ve already taken off all the ornaments and lights, recycle your tree instead by turning it into mulch this weekend at MulchFest!
From 10 am until 2 pm (Jan. 6 and 7) there will be several chipping locations throughout the five boroughs you can take your tree to turn it into nourishing mulch. The annual MulchFest is created in partnership between NYC Parks, the New York City Department of Sanitation , and GreeNYC.
“These wood chips are used to nourish trees and plants on streets and gardens citywide. Or, take home your very own bag of mulch to use in your backyard or to make a winter bed for a street tree. More than 26,000 trees were recycled last year. Help us top this number!”
Help out the community and start off your 2018 a bit greener!
