Treecycle at MulchFest on January 10 and 11, 2015

On Saturday, January 10th and Sunday, January 11th, NYC Parks’ annual MulchFest will take place at Washington Square Park from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00p.m. Bring your holiday tree to be recycled into mulch that will nourish plantings across the city or your own garden.

This year, be one of thousands of New York households to help the environment and the community by bringing your tree to Washington Square Park.

The Parks Department requests that you NOT drop off your tree prior to MulchFest. Please bring your tree ON January 10 or 11 between 10am and 2pm. Thank you! 

Remember to remove all lights and decorations before bringing your tree for mulching.

Patrons are encouraged to take advantage of the free mulch available at each chipping site. Free mulch collection bags are provided for your convenience.
