Bring One For The Chipper

What can you do with your live Christmas tree after the holidays are over? Bring it for the Chipper! Home Depot on Cumberland Parkway and Keep Smyrna Beautiful will again host the Smyrna-Vinings area site for the Christmas tree recycling event on Jan. 2. Keep Smyrna Beautiful will offer citizens a free tree seedling for each tree dropped off while they last. Vegetable and flower seed packets will also be available. Volunteers will be on hand to direct traffic and to help citizens unload their trees. Davey Tree Experts will chip the trees and deliver free mulch

If you would like to donate your tree, simply remove all the ornaments and the base and bring it to the Home Depot on Cumberland Parkway between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 2. Home Depot asks that trees not be dropped off until the day of the event because of space limitations. Also, please do not bring wreathes and garland. The wire used to hold them together cannot be chipped. To volunteer, call Keep Smyrna Beautiful at 770-431-2863. For information on mulch delivery call Davey Tree Experts at 770-451-7911

Keep Cobb Beautiful’s annual Christmas Tree recycling Program will be held Jan. 2. Please bring your live Christmas trees to anyone of the nine Cobb County Home Depots or one of four County Parks (Noonday, Fullers, Sewell, or Lost Mountain).
