New Year’s Day is still two days off, but discarded Christmas trees are already making their appearance on Brooklyn Heights sidewalks. The Department of Sanitation is asking people to hold off until Tuesday, January 3rd, when curbside tree collection will begin, continuing through Saturday, January 14th. As an alternative you can lug your tree down to Cobble Hill Park next Saturday and Sunday (10 AM to 2 PM) for MulchFest, the Sanitation Department’s annual program where trees will be ground up on site, and you can walk home with a bag of mulch for your garden. In both cases, remember to reeve all tinsel and ornaments from the tree before discarding or mulching.
Christmas Tree collection begins Tuesday; Mulchfest is next weekend.
