GO GREEN AND "TREECYCLE" AT 20th ANNUAL MULCHFEST!
Nearly 80 locations across all five boroughs
DATE: Saturday, January 9 and Sunday, January 10, 2016
TIME: 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
DETAILS: The 20th annual MulchFest provides New Yorkers with a fun and environmentally-friendly opportunity to recycle their trees into woodchips that will nourish trees and gardens throughout the city. MulchFest takes place at 30 chipping sites and 48 drop-off sites in nearly 80 designated parks across all five boroughs.
At chipping sites, patrons are invited to bring home a bag of free mulch for their own garden. Free mulch collection bags will be provided at all chipping sites.
And this year, drop-off locations will be accepting trees starting Saturday, January 2nd and running through January 10th.
