Bring One For the Chipper Christmas tree program runs through Jan. 4


Through Jan. 4, 2020, Spalding County residents may recycle their Christmas trees through the Bring One For the Chipper program.

Hosted by Spalding County Public Works, the annual recycling event allows trees to be dropped off at the Carver Road Collection Center located at 610 Carver Road.

Trees will be chipped into mulch or used as a wildlife habitat. The program has been a holiday tradition in Georgia for 30 years and is the largest tree recycling program in the nation.

The purpose of the event is to educate the public on recycling and environmental conservation while allowing communities to put discarded Christmas trees to good use.

Christmas trees are being accepted at all Spalding County Collection Centers, but in order to participate in the Bring One For the Chipper program, they will need to be brought to the Carver Road location.

Program sponsors include the Keep Georgia Beautiful Foundation, Home Depot, The Davey Tree Expert Company, Georgia Forestry Commission, Atlanta’s NBC affiliate 11Alive, Ferry Morse Company and Burpee Seed Company.

For additional information, please contact Spalding County Public Works at 770.467.4774.
