Keep Dawson County Beautiful has partnered with Home Depot once again this year to encourage residents to go green by recycling Christmas trees.

 

Bring One for the Chipper, the state’s annual Christmas tree recycling program, invites all Dawson County residents to bring their undecorated Christmas trees to the Dawsonville Home Depot drop-off site on Saturday, Jan. 8 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

 

Residents may also drop off trees at the Dawson County Transfer Station and Recycling Center, located at 946 Burt Creek Road, through Jan. 8 during regular business hours, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

 

Please remove all decorations before bringing your tree to either location.

 

“The program successfully transforms Chipper trees into mulch for playgrounds, public beautification projects, wildlife habitat and homeowner landscaping projects,” said Cathy Brooks, executive director of Keep Dawson County Beautiful.

 

Dawson County residents may pick up free Christmas tree mulch for their own projects from the transfer station beginning Jan. 11 while supply lasts.

 

Since 1991 Bring One for the Chipper has collected and recycled more than 5 million trees.
