Once again the city of Philadelphia is not recycling Christmas trees left at the curb! Trees left at the curb will go into landfills, produce methane gas and contribute to global warming. Bummer, right?

Join us in making our community Clean and Green by participating in Treecycling! On Saturday, January 8th volunteers from EKNA, ORCA, and FNA will be joining NKCDC to chip as many trees as possible!

BEFORE – Drop off your trees anytime between December 26th and January 8th at Greensgrow Farms (2501 E. Cumberland Street) or the NKCDC Garden Center (Frankford & Berks).

DAY-OF – Feel free to bring your tree directly to the chipper on January 8th!

9am-12noon – behind Port Richmond Plaza (where Girard Avenue meets Richmond Street)

12noon – 3pm – across from Emerald Street Urban Farm (SW corner of Dauphin and Emerald)

ROUNDUP – Put your trees curbside before 9am the mornnig of January 8th, and volunteers will be by to grab it!

$5 suggested donation. Please remove all tinsel and decorations!!
