NYC Parks Mulchfest


  • Union Square Park East 14th Street (between Broadway & Park Ave) New York, NY United States (map)

Wrap up your holiday season and say goodbye to your tree at Mulchfest. Join NYC Parks and the New York City Department of Sanitation in the NYC holiday tradition of TREErecycling your Christmas tree!

Just haul your tree to a Mulchfest location — Union Square Park being one! Your tree will be chipped into wood chips that will be used to nourish trees and make NYC even greener.

Know Before You Go: remember to remove all lights, ornaments, and netting before bringing the tree to a Mulchfest site.

Check out NYC Parks list of Mulchfest locations and event info here.

Note: If you cannot make it out to the park to drop off, there will be Curbside Collections. The NYC Department of Sanitation will be conducting special curbside collections from Wednesday, January 2, 2019 through Saturday, January 12, 2019.
