Treecycle (from December 26 – January 31)
Recycle your Christmas tree in Riverside Park. Drop your tree at any park entrance and we will bring it to our chipping site to be Treecycled. The chips from your tree will be used as mulch throughout the park. You can even take home a bag of mulch to provide warm winter protection for the street tree in front of your apartment. No need to register – just come on by!
More than 25,000 trees were recycled last year city-wide. Help us top this number!
**Note: Please remember to remove all lights and ornaments before bringing the tree to a MulchFest site. For more info on citywide tree drop-off and chipping sites, please visit https://www.nycgovparks.org/highlights/festivals/mulchfest.
