Christmas Tree Disposal

The Village of New Paltz will be mulching Christmas trees this year and offering the mulch to anyone interested in it for gardens or pathways. Residents are encouraged to get their trees out of the house BEFORE they dry out as they pose a high fire risk. There are two ways you can dispose of your Christmas tree to be mulched:

  1. 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;
  2.  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  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.
