Mulchfest: Where to Recycle Your Christmas Tree in Brooklyn

On January 8th and 9th from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm you can bring your holiday tree to either the Third Street entrance to Prospect Park or Park Circle at Parkside Avenue and Prospect Park Southwest to have it turned into environment-friendly ground cover.

You can even take home some free mulch for your own yard or garden. While you wait for your mulch at the Third Street entrance, you can also enjoy hot chocolate, cookies and spicy cinnamon tea served by the Park Slope Civic Council.

Can’t make it? If you live in the area between Union and Fifteenth Street and between Sixth Avenue and Prospect Park West you can leave your tree at either end of your block before 1:00 p.m. on both days and it will be picked up by volunteers from 1-800 MR RUBBISH.

Mulchfest is co-sponsored by the Park Slope Civic Council in partnership with the Prospect Park Alliance and MR. RUBBISH. To volunteer, please contact Jessica Jamhoury, Project Coordinator at the Alliance at (718) 965-8960 or email the Civic Council Sustainability Committee at sustainable@parkslopeciviccouncil.org.
