The Village of New Paltz will be mulching Christmas trees this year and offering that by-product to anyone interested in it for gardens or pathways. Residents are encouraged to get their trees out of the house before they dry out a as they pose a high fire risk.
There are two ways you can dispose of your Christmas tree to be mulched:
• In the Village, leave it curbside any time before 10:00 AM on Friday, January 11th 2019. If you choose this option, please give the DPW a call at 845-255-1980 to give a heads-up that the tree is ready for pick-up or;
• Drop it off at the Village DPW next to Village Hall, 25 Plattekill Avenue before 10:00 AM on Friday, January 11th, 2019.
Contact Village Clerk Alberta Shaw for more information: 845-255-0130 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mulch will be made available free of charge to the public after Monday, January 14, 2019 at the Village’s waste water treatment plant located off of Huguenot Street. Please note: many gardeners recommend aging fresh mulch before applying to plants. Please consult with a garden expert if unsure what’s best for your application.
