Promoting MulchFest 2014
Today, I participated in a press conference announcing MulchFest, an annual citywide event, sponsored by the New York City Parks Department, Department of Sanitation and GreeNYC, that allows New Yorkers to recycle their Christmas trees so they can be turned into eco-friendly compost. Mulching is a great reuse of trees that would otherwise end up in landfills and benefits parks and gardens throughout the City.
Curbside collection of trees will take place through Wednesday, January 15, 2014 and on Saturday January 11 and Sunday January 12 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m, New Yorkers can bring their trees to a nearby chipping location and walk away with their very own bag of mulch. Please go to the Parks Department's MulchFest webpage here for more information and other chipping locations.
