On Saturday, January 6 and Sunday, January 7, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., bring your holiday tree to Astoria Park to be recycled into mulch that will nourish plantings across the city.
Join NYC Parks, 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 NYC Sanitation top this number.
You can bring your tree to a chipping location on January 6 and 7. Officials will chip your tree, and give you your very own bag of mulch!
You can also bring your tree to a drop-off site until Sunday, January 7, 2018.
Leave your tree with Parks and Sanitation, and they’ll recycle it for you later.
