Bring One for the Chipper - Christmas Tree Recycling
Christmas Tree Recycling is held in conjunction with the Department of Community Affair’s Keep Georgia Beautiful “Bring One for the Chipper” program. The event date varies each year, but is usually the 1st or 2nd Saturday in January. You can support the Chipper program by bringing your undecorated, cut Christmas tree to the West Remington Recycling Center. The mulch from these trees is used for playgrounds, local government beautification projects, and individual yards. As a gift for recycling your Christmas tree, seedlings are distributed while supplies last.
