Two Ways To Recycle Your Christmas Tree In The Neighborhood

Now that the holidays are over, its time to put the decorations away and to recycle your tree.
One way to do that is to bring it to the yearly Cobble Hill Neighborhood TreeCycle event held next Saturday, January 5th.  Here is the info:

Another way to recycle your tree is to put it at the curb in front of your house.

The City of New York's Department of Sanitation will begin recycling Christmas trees starting tomorrow Wednesday, January, 2, 2013. The program will run through Saturday, January 12th.
Residents should remove all tree stands, tinsel, lights, and ornaments from trees before they are put out at curbside for removal. Trees must not be placed into plastic bags. Clean, non-bagged Christmas trees that are left on the curb between Wednesday, January 2nd and Saturday, January 12th will be collected, chipped, and made into compost
