NYC Sanitation does some curb-side pick-up for Christmas tree mulching over the next two weeks, but it’s never clear when that is and whether your tree will be recycled for the good of all living trees. So, if you want to be sure your tree gets mulched, drag it around to Corlears Hook Park before January 8 where NYC Parks will take care of it properly.
Please don’t just leave it anywhere. Bring the tree to the park entrance on Jackson Street, which is where the pick-up will be next weekend.
(If you actually want the chips from your tree to use in your home garden, you’ll need to bring your tree to Tompkins Square Park on Saturday or Sunday, 10 am – 2 pm. The Corlears site is drop-off only.)
