Recycle Your Tree at WSP This Weekend by the Arch – Keep Your Tree Out of the Landfill

People Started Dropping Off Early near Arch?

“MulchFest” comes to Washington Square Park this weekend Saturday, January 7th and Sunday, January 8th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. by the Arch. You can recycle your tree in the chipper into mulch at locations throughout the city. This is coordinated by the Parks Department and the Department of Sanitation. Keep your tree out of the landfill! You can get some mulch at the drop-off sites.

Curbside pick up of trees is ongoing this year from January 3rd to January 12th. Whether dropping off or leaving on the curb, remove all tree stands, tinsel, lights, and ornaments from trees.

I always find it a bit sad watching trees go in the chipper. One year, when the Department of Sanitation canceled curbside pickup, a group I worked with, Recycle This!, went around picking up discarded trees on the streets of Brooklyn! I wrote about that here.
