HHG's eyesore of the week on 1/11/11 was a photo of the Christmas trees piled on the street waiting for garbage collection. We figured that within a week the situation would have resolved itself. It hasn't. There have never been so many trees dumped on the streets for so long. A few were even dumped in the Paterno Trivium at 187th and Cabrini.
We promise to begin posting information on tree recycling in November this year! The City sponsors free tree mulching and recycling, including this year's site in Bennett Park. Look for information on recycling your tree next year at www.nyc.gov/parks.
