Join NYC Parks, the New York City Department of Sanitation , and GreeNYC  to recycle your Christmas trees into wood chips. Bring your holiday tree to a designated city park to be recycled into mulch that will nourish plantings across the city!

This year, MulchFest will take place on January 6 and 7, 2018. It’s easier than ever to chip in! There are two ways you can help:

You can bring your tree to a chipping location on January 6 and 7 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Have your tree chipped and bring home your very own bag of mulch!

Or you can bring your tree to a drop-off site from Sunday, December 31, 2017 through Sunday, January 7, 2018. Leave your tree and they’ll recycle it for you later! The NYC Department of Sanitation will also be conducting special curbside collections for mulching and recycling of Christmas trees from Tuesday, January 2, 2018 through Saturday, January 13, 2018.
