<![CDATA[Washington Square Christmas Eve Caroling]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2017/12/24/washington-square-park-holiday-tree-lighting http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2017/12/24/washington-square-park-holiday-tree-lighting Date: December 24, 2017

Celebrate the holidays with carols near the Washington Square Arch. The Rob Susman Brass Quartet, song leader, and the revelers from all over the city will lustily sing out familiar tunes. The words are in the songbooks distributed by the Washington Square Association, but many will know them by heart. “Peace on Earth, Good Will to Men” will ring out and is especially meaningful this season.

The Washington Square Association, Inc. founded in 1906, is one of the city’s oldest community organizations. For 93 years, it has sponsored carol singing under the arch. Other activities concern the continued improvement of Washington Square, the Washington Square Music Festival, and the fostering of neighborhood spirit.

<![CDATA[MulchFest]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2018/01/06/mulchfest http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2018/01/06/mulchfest Date: January 6, 2018

Bring your holiday tree to a designated city park to be recycled into mulch that will nourish plantings across the city!

Join NYC Parks, the New York City Department of Sanitation , and GreeNYC to recycle your Christmas trees into wood chips. These wood chips are used to nourish trees and plants on streets and gardens citywide. Or, take home your very own bag of mulch to use in your backyard or to make a winter bed for a street tree. More than 26,000 trees were recycled last year. Help us top this number!

How to 'Chip In'

This year, MulchFest will take place on January 6 and 7, 2018. It’s easier than ever to chip in! There are two ways you can help:

Chipping Locations

You can bring your tree to a chipping location on January 6 and 7 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. We’ll chip your tree, and give you your very own bag of mulch! Find a chipping location!

Drop Off Locations

Or you can bring your tree to a drop-off site from Sunday, December 31, 2017 through Sunday, January 7, 2018. Leave your tree with us, and we’ll recycle it for you later! Find a drop-off location!

The NYC Department of Sanitation will also be conducting special curbside collections for mulching and recycling of Christmas trees from Tuesday, January 2, 2018 through Saturday, January 13, 2018.

What to Bring

Please remember to remove all lights, ornaments, and netting before bringing the tree to a MulchFest site. Bags will be provided if you wish to take some free mulch home. Mulch is available at the sites marked with an asterisk (*) below.

How to Volunteer

Help us spread mulch in tree beds throughout the city! Join our Stewardship Team on Saturday, January 6 to help us spread mulch and insulate our young trees from the cold weather. Find a site near you, and help give back! Register today!
