Not sure what to do with the Christmas still sitting in the corner, shedding needles? This Saturday or Sunday haul it on down to the Third Street entrance to Prospect Park and enjoy some tea and cookies while you watch it get turned into mulch!
If you can't make it, there are a couple other tree disposal options as well. If you live in the area between Union Street and 15th Street and 6th Avenue and Prospect Park West you can just leave your tree at the end of your block before 1 PM on those days and a truck will come along to haul it away. Or you can just leave your tree at the Third Street Mulchfest site the night before, although it's not the ideal way to go.
Those who attend will also have the opportunity to grab a free bag of mulch. If you're interested in volunteering, give Jessica Jamhoury at the Prospect Park Alliance a call, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
