Upcoming: The Grim Mulcher Cometh

Holidays Definitely Over

If the holidays are over, that can only mean one thing: It's almost time for Mulchfest. This year's festivities take place on Saturday (1/5) and Sunday (1/6) from 10AM-2PM. We've gone to the copy & paste courtesy of the Parks Department website to bring you all the Brooklyn chipping and drop off locations. The Sanitation Department is also picking up trees for recycling that are left at the curb starting tomorrow (1/3) through January 16, for those that want to hang on to that holiday spirit beyond Sunday. In Park Slope, the Mulchfest crew is looking for volunteers to help out. If anyone's interested, they can call 718-965-8960 or email volunteers (at) prospectpark (dot) org. The links in the table below, by the way, take you to the maps of each park on the Parks Dept. website. Happy mulching:
