Recycle Christmas trees Saturday, Jan. 4

December 18, 2019

Chipper eventRecycle your Christmas tree by taking it to the Home Depot parking lot at 5950 State Bridge Road in Johns Creek on Saturday, Jan. 4, 2020, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Residents are asked to remove electric lights, tinsel and ornaments from the tree, and make sure your tree has not been flocked, or sprayed with fake snow made from artificial materials. Some retailers use natural, corn-based flocking, which is acceptable at the event.
 
The trees will be recycled into mulch for playgrounds, city and county landscaping projects, and individual home use, and will also be used to provide habitats for fish and other animals. Mulch is available free to the public upon request by contacting Davey Tree Expert Co. at 770-451-7911, or by filling out the form here.

The local event, sponsored by the City of Johns Creek and Keep Johns Creek Beautiful, is part of a statewide recycling effort by Keep Georgia Beautiful and the Georgia Department of Community Affairs.
