[ Bid a Fond Farewell to Your Christmas Tree–The RIGHT Way ]

Christmas Tree Recycling

As the holiday season draws to a close and the kids make the most out of the final days of winter break, some are finding that evergreens aren’t actually green forever.  Particularly when cut down and brought into your home.  Whether you celebrate with a Christmas tree, Yule log or Hanukah bush (turns out it’s a thing), it has probably started depositing needles on your rug…and you might have noticed it looking a bit more fire-hazardy of late.  But before you drag your holiday greenery out to the curb, consider tying it to the roof of your car one more time and bring it to Georgia’s “Bring One for the Chipper” event.  In the last 25 years, this tree recycling event, organized by Keep Georgia Beautiful, has processed an estimated 6 million trees.  Your tree will get new life as playground mulch, government beautification projects and more!

To find out where you can recycle your tree free of charge, visit the “Bring One for the Chipper” webpage at http://www.keepgeorgiabeautiful.org/bring_one_for_chipper.asp
