Bring One for the Chipper

Christmas is over, so what to do with the Christmas tree?

Recycle that Tree! ….Bring One For The Chipper! on Saturday, January 7, 2012, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Home Depot parking lot on Cumberland Parkway.

Make sure that your tree keeps on giving after the holidays by removing all ornaments and the base and deliver it to the event between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on January 7th.

Also, Keep Smyrna Beautiful will have a free dogwood, redbud, or cedar seedling to give away!

Volunteers are needed, too. To volunteer, call Keep Smyrna Beautiful at 770-431-2863.

Bring One for the Chipper is Georgia’s annual Christmas tree recycling program. Each year, Keep Georgia Beautiful works with private sponsors to organize the recycling event. In the past, these statewide sponsors have included The Home Depot, The Davey Tree Expert Company and WXIA-TV. Numerous local sponsors and volunteers also make contributions and provide in-kind services across the state.

The Chipper program involves hundreds of Georgia communities and thousands of volunteers. Since its inception, the program has recycled over 4.8 million Christmas trees. The mulch from these trees has been used for playgrounds, local government beautification projects, and individual yards. You can support the Chipper program by bringing your cut Christmas tree to a designated drop off site or volunteering with your local coordinator to collect trees.
