Chip in! Recycle your Christmas tree at WSP! And Parks across NYC.
Don’t just leave your Christmas tree for the landfill as trash on the curb. NYC exports 13,000 tons of residential garbage A DAY. Help reduce this amount.
When: Saturday, January 9 and Sunday, January 10, 2010
10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Bring your holiday tree to a designated city park to be recycled into mulch that will nourish plantings across the city. Remember to remove all lights and ornaments before bringing the tree to a MulchFest site. You are encouraged to bring bags to take advantage of the free mulch provided at certain sites (including Washington Square Park).
Note: Most likely the place to bring your tree is by the Arch. Since so much of Washington Square Park is closed for Phase II– I’m sure the chipper will be visible. No word as to whether Mayor Bloomberg will be there.
