It's the Last Weekend of NYC's Mulchfest. Here's Where to Recycle Your Christmas Tree Uptown.

Updated: Jan 9

It's the last weekend of Mulchfest, the citywide program that lets you recycle your Christmas tree at one of the Parks Department's dedicated drop-off spots. The resulting mulch will be used to nourish the city's trees.

This is also the last official Chipping Weekend, when you can take your tree to a special chipping spot and get a bag of free mulch to use in your backyard or place around a street tree. In Upper Manhattan, the only chipping site is in Inwood Park (see address below); hours this Saturday and Sunday are 10am-2pm.

Here are all the Mulchfest drop-off locations in Upper Manhattan, from south to north:

• East Harlem Marcus Garvey Park, E 120th St and Madison Ave

• Central Harlem Morningside Park, W 123rd St and Morningside Ave

• Central Harlem St. Nicholas Park, one block south of W 133rd St and St. Nicholas Ave

• Central Harlem Brigadier General Charles Young Playground, 145th St and Lenox Ave

• Washington Heights J. Hood Wright Park, W 173rd St near Haven Ave

• Inwood Inwood Hill Park, Isham St and Seaman Ave
