Wrap up your holiday season and say goodbye to your tree at Mulchfest! Join NYC Parks and the New York City Department of Sanitation in the NYC holiday tradition of recycling your Christmas tree. Drop off your tree at WSP during park hours between December 26 and January 9 or join the action at Chipping Weekend on Saturday, January 8 and Sunday, January 9 from 10:00am-2:00pm!
Washington Square Park is proud to be a chipping location again this year. Bring your tree to Chipping Weekend and take home an eco-friendly tree-mento! NYC Parks and DSNY will chip your tree and give you your very own bag of mulch to use in your backyard or to make a winter bed for a street tree.
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.
