Improving the neighborhoods of Rockaway and Broad Channel after the devastation of Hurricane Sandy includes the removal of dead shrubs and trees and subsequent re-landscaping. This weekend, NYC Parks will assist in this effort with a debris collection and compost distribution initiative.
We are conducting a wood debris collection effort, during which you can bring your tree debris, branches and shrubs to two locations for chipping. At these sites, compost (which provides beneficial organic matter when incorporated into soil) can be obtained at no cost. Please bring bags and shovels for the compost.
