This year, MulchFest will take place on January 7 and 8, 2017. It’s easier than ever to chip in! There are two ways you can help.

Bring your holiday tree to a designated city park to be recycled into mulch that will nourish plantings across the city!

Join the New York City Department of Parks & 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 30,000 trees were recycled last year. Help us top this number!

How to ‘Chip In’

This year, MulchFest will take place on January 7 and 8, 2017. It’s easier than ever to chip in! There are two ways you can help.

Chipping Locations

You can bring your tree to a chipping location on January 7 and 8 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. We’ll chip your tree, and give you your very own bag of mulch!

Drop Off Locations

Or you can bring your tree to a drop-off site from Saturday, December 31, 2016 through Sunday, January 8, 2017. Leave your tree with us, and we’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 Tuesday, January 3, 2017 through Saturday, January 14, 2017.

What to Bring

Please remember to remove all lights, ornaments, and netting before bringing the tree to a MulchFest site. Bags will be provided if you wish to take some free mulch home. Mulch is available at the sites marked with an asterisk (*) below.

Tree Stewardship
