Feeling chipper!

Battery Park City’s annual tree recycling program is now underway. To participate, simply place your unadorned tree curbside through Wednesday, January 31 for pickup – no stands, lights, ornaments, or tinsel, please – and we’ll take care of the rest.

At the close of the holiday season each year, BPCA collects Christmas trees to chip and use for composting, plant protection, and soil insulation and enrichment throughout Battery Park City’s parks. With your help we are able to recycle thousands of trees each year. This not only provides nourishment for more than 30 acres of green space but also reduces the amount of materials bound for the landfill, in keeping with the Authority’s sustainability and Zero Waste goals.

But wait, there’s more! Our annual tree recycling effort marks the traditional start of the winter programming season – check out the full range of free events here. We look forward to seeing you this winter in Battery Park City!
