Treecycling

For the sixth year, QVNA is partnering with greenlimbs to serve the city and residents by offering an alternative means of sustainable tree disposal at Treecycling on Saturday, January 7 from 9am-2pm.

Since 2011, greenlimbs and community partners have diverted more than 1,500 trees from landfill turning them instead into mulch for use at schoolyards, senior centers and city parks.

This year our chipping hub will be located at Jefferson Square Park. We’ll host drop-off sites in Bella Vista, Queen Village, and Washington Square West. Mulch generated from trees and holiday greens will be donated this year to Bennett Compost for use in the winter/spring operations.

*Trees and greens should be bare and free of ornaments, lights, and stand

Drop-off Locations

  • Bainbridge Green (4th & Bainbridge Green) 10 am – 2 pm
  • Jefferson Square Park (4th & Washington Ave) 10 am – 2 pm
  • Rite Aid (9th & Catherine) 10 am -2 pm
  • The Shambles (2nd & Pine) 10 am – 2 pm
  • Louis I. Kahn Park (SE Corner of 11th & Pine) 10 am – 12 pm

Bennett Compost is also offering the option to pick your tree up curbside on one of two upcoming weekends (1/7/17, 1/14/17) and take them to the South Philly Treecyclers for you. We will be charging $15, $5 of which will be going to the civic associations listed above.  If you are interested in this option click here.
