Columbus Square and Trash & Recycling and Volunteers04 Jan 2012 11:05 am

Your Christmas tree has treated you to another great holiday season, don’t return the favor by sending it to rot in some landfill. Treecycle it! On Saturday, January 7th from 10am to 4pm, you can bring your tree to Columbus Square park (corner of 13th and Reed streets) and have it turned into wood chips and mulch that will be used in local parks and gardens.

A $5 donation is suggested to cover the costs of the tree chipping. Please be sure to remove all decorations (they don’t make good mulch). Unfortunately, we can’t take early drop-offs so make your plans now to be there between 10am and 4pm. Please note that the City of Philadelphia does not recycle trees left at the curb.

Do you have a couple hours you can offer to help out with this event? We’re looking for a few good volunteers. Email if you’re interested.
