Bring One for the Chipper 2012

Recycle that Tree! ….Bring One For The Chipper! on Saturday, January 7, 2012, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Recycle your Christmas tree at the Sandy Springs Recycling Center, The Home Depot in Sandy Springs, or the Home Depot in Johns Creek.

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.

You can bring your tree to either of two Home Depot stores, 5950 State Bridge in Duluth or 6400 Peachtree Dunwoody in Sandy Springs. As always, the Schmalz Recycling Center will be accepting trees. All three of the locations will be offering a seedling in exchange for your Christmas tree. The trees will be chipped into mulch and used for public beautification projects, and is available free to Sandy Springs and North Fulton residents.

As part of a statewide effort to reuse Christmas trees, Keep Georgia Beautiful and the Georgia Department of Community Affairs has joined with corporate sponsors The Home Depot, WXIA TV and The Davey Tree Expert Company to sponsor the annual ‘Bring One for the Chipper’ program.

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.
