Recycle your Christmas Trees Saturday, Jan. 5

January 03, 2019

Bring One for the ChipperRecycle your Christmas tree by taking it to the Home Depot/Target parking lot at 5950 State Bridge Road in Johns Creek on Saturday, Jan. 5, 2019, from 9 a.m. to 4 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.

As part of the statewide "Bring One for the Chipper" program, the recycling effort helps keep trees out of landfills and the mulch can be used for playgrounds, public beautification projects, wildlife habitat and homeowner landscaping projects. 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.
