Treecycle in Harlem at MulchFest 2013

January 7, 2014

mulchfest-treecycleBring 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 26,000 trees were recycled last year. Help us top this number!
