With the holidays now behind us, there’s no better way to officially wrap it up than sustainably disposing of your Christmas tree. New York City Parks’ annual Mulchfest started on December 26 and will run through January 9, making it easy for New Yorkers to dispose of their trees at 74 drop-off sites across the five boroughs. Mulchfest’s Chipping Weekend will take place on January 8 and 9 at 35 locations, giving participants the opportunity to watch as their tree is mulched and given back to them in a bag to use for further planting.

Not quite sure how to get rid of that Christmas Tree? From December 26 to January 11, NYC will be hosting its annual Mulchfest so that you can recycle your tree at a local park. With 67 total drop-off sites throughout the five boroughs—32 of which are chipping sites—it’s easier than ever to get your tree turned into mulch that will be used to help nourish trees and plants across the city.
