We hope you had an enjoyable and safe holiday season and made it through the blizzard.
If you have Christmas trees that you’d like to get rid of this week, there are several options.
The first is Mulch Fest 2011:
Additionally, the Department of Sanitation says:
The NYC Department of Sanitation will be conducting special collections for mulching and recycling of Christmas trees.
Collections will take place beginning on Monday, January 3 through Saturday, January 15, 2011.
Residents are encouraged to put out their discarded trees at curbside as early as possible during the collection period.
DSNY asks residents to remove all tree stands, tinsel, lights, and ornaments from trees before placing them out for collection. DO NOT place trees in plastic bags.Trees will be chipped into mulch that will be distributed to parks, playing fields, and community gardens throughout the city.
For more information, visit their website, though My Upper West reported yesterday that the curbside pickups were on hold for now since they are catching up on trash collection after the storm (Read: Christmas Tree Recycling on Hold While Track Pickup Picks Up). The Mulch Fest may be the best bet this year.
