This weekend is your chance to dispose of that pine tree dropping needles all over your apartment, and turn it into mulch that helps plants in our public parks. (See adorable video here.)
The city’s parks department is hosting its annual Mulchfest from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
Click through for the details.
Via our friends at the Friends of Gulick Park group:
Bring your holiday tree to one of the designated parks to be recycled into mulch that will nourish plantings across the city or your own garden!
This year, we are encouraging all New York households to help the environment and the community by bringing their trees to our nearest collection site. At the chipping sites, you will have the opportunity to take home your mulch. Remember to remove all lights and decorations before bringing the tree to a MulchFest site!
There are two options for our neighborhood:
Corlears Hook Park, Jackson and Cherry Street at FDR Drive: tree drop-off location only
Tompkins Square Park, East 9th St between Avenues A & B: tree drop-off and chipping site (mulch available to take home).
Dispose of your tree responsibly. Don’t be the source of a situation like this one on East 7th Street last night!
