So Long Little Christmas Tree: Brooklyn Mulchfest Locations

Discarded Trees

We've delayed doing a post about Mulchfest--the annual Christmas tree recycling event--for weeks. Before Christmas, it was depressing. We thought about it the day after Christmas when a discarded tree blew onto Hamilton Avenue and right into the path of the vehicle in which we were riding, but still felt it was too soon. And, now, with the New Year here, it's time to note that you can recycle your Christmas tree on January 6 and 7 from 10AM to 2PM. (Everyone else is noting it too, so you truly can't say that you didn't know about Mulchfest.) You can check out the Mulchfest web page here for locations all over the city. For your convenience, we're listing the Brooklyn locations below. Make sure to remove all the decorations and lights from your tree before you sadly (or gladly) drop it off for mulching. All sites are both "drop off" sites and chipper sites unless noted:
  • Prospect Park, Third Street and Prospect Park West.
  • Owl’s Head Park, Colonial Road and 68th Street.
  • McCarren Park, Driggs Avenue and Lorimer Street.
  • Cobble Hill Park, Congress and Clinton streets.
  • Marine Park, Avenue U between Stuart and East 33rd streets.
  • Von King Park, Lafayette Street and Marcy Avenue.
  • Ft. Greene Park, Washington Park and Willoughby Street.
  • Amazing Garden, Carroll and Columbia streets. Drop off site only.
  • Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Park, Dumont and Bradford avenues. Drop off site only.
  • Maria Hernandez Park, Knickerbocker Avenue and Suydam Street. Drop off site only.
  • Greenwood Cemetery, 25th Street and 5th Avenue. (This site will be open on January 13 only for those who have separation issues.) Drop off site.
