How to get rid of your Christmas tree and help the environment

With Christmas now behind us, it's time to start thinking about how, and when, you're going to get rid of that Christmas tree.
The New York City Department of Parks & Recreation’s annual Mulchfest kicks off today.
New Yorkers can drop off their Christmas trees until Jan. 7 at 72 locations in all five boroughs. Trees will then be turned into mulch, which is then used to nourish vegetation at parks across the city.
On Jan. 6 and 7, people will also be able to see their trees get chipped and collect mulch for their own gardens.
