Mulchfest @ Cobble Hill Park - Jan. 12th & 13th

Though trees are going up in homes citywide now, please remember to responsibly dispose of them when the holiday season is over. NYC Parks Dept. will be doing a tree recycling as part of Mulchfest 2013.

Saturday January 5th, 2013
10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. @ Cobble Hill Park (and various other locations across the city the following weekend January 12th & 13th)
Join the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, the New York City Department of Sanitation , and GreeNYC  to recycle your Christmas trees into wood chips. 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 24,000 trees were recycled last year. Help us top this number!

Please remember to remove all lights and ornaments before bringing the tree to a MulchFest site. Biodegradable bags will be provided if you wish to take some free mulch home.
