WASHINGTON SQUARE PARK, (WABC) -- The New York City departments of Parks and Sanitation have begun their annual Mulchfest with the "Chipping Saturday" tradition.
Put on your boots and haul your tree to a Mulchfest location, where it can be transformed into your very own bag of mulch:
Bronx--Brook Park Youth Farm
Brooklyn--Prospect Park West & 3rd Street
Manhattan--Washington Square Park
Queens--Juniper Valley Park
Staten Island--Conference House Parking Lot
The parks department has transformed 28,000 trees into mulch in 2019 and their goal is to recycle more this year. The final Chipping Day will be Saturday January 11.
A complete list of all Mulchfest chipping locations can be found on NYC Parks' website.
