Upcoming recycling and composting events

The post-holiday season can result in a lot of waste.  Groups around New York City are offering a host of upcoming recycling and composting events to ensure that not everything simply ends up in a landfill.

  • Parks all over the five boroughs will be participating in MulchFest this weekend, allowing you to bring your Christmas tree to a designated location to be chipped into mulch.  You can also take away free mulch being offered by the city.  10am-2pm, Saturday and Sunday.  The Department of Sanitation will also be offering curbside pickup of trees until January 15th.
  • The Lower East Side Ecology Center (LESEC) is offering several E-waste recycling points in Manhattan and Brooklyn, this weekend and next, where you can dispose of unwanted or broken electronic devices.
  • LESEC and the NYC Compost Project are hosting a number of worm composting workshops, for adults and for kids.  Registration in required and there is a fee of $5 per person.
