New York City residents can start placing their Christmas trees curbside on Monday for collection by the Department of Sanitation. 

The department will be collecting trees for mulching and recycling from Monday, Dec. 30 through Wednesday, Jan. 15. 

Residents should remove all tree stands, tinsel, lights and ornaments from trees before putting them out on curb for collection. Trees should not be placed in plastic bags.

The trees will be chipped into mulch, to be distributed to parks, playing fields and community gardens throughout the city. 

The city will also hold its annual MulchFest event on Jan. 11 and 12, allowing New Yorkers to bring their trees to a designated chipping location and bring the mulch from their tree back home.
