6 places to “treecycle” your Christmas tree this year
Bottoms Christmas Tree Farm

Christmas has come and gone, and once again it’s time to start taking down decorations, ornaments, lights and trees as we head into the new year. 

To help with the annual holiday tear down, Keep Forsyth County Beautiful (KFCB) will once again host its “treecycling” event, “Bring One for the Chipper,” offering six local locations where county residents can come and dispose of their Christmas tree for no cost. 

Christmas tree drop-off locations include:

• Vickery Creek Elementary School 

Where: 6280 Post Road

When: Dec. 26 to Jan 4, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

• Tolbert Street Recycling Convenience Center 

Where: 351 Tolbert St. 

When: Dec. 26 to Jan. 25, Monday through Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

• Old Atlanta Recycling Convenience Center 

Where: 3678 Old Atlanta Road

When: Dec. 26 to Jan. 25, Monday through Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

• Coal Mountain Recycling Center

Where: 3560 Settingdown Road

When: Dec. 26 to Jan. 25, Monday through Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

• Home Depot stores  

Where: 1000 Market Place Blvd. and 2635 Peachtree Parkway

When: Saturday, Jan. 4 until 4 p.m.  

According to KFCB, all three recycling centers will be closed for Jan. 1, 2020, for New Year’s Day and Jan. 20 for Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

This will mark the 29th year that KFCB has hosted “Bring One for the Chipper,” and in a press release, residents are asked to bring only natural trees free of lights, decorations, plastic bags and bases to the drop-off locations.

Trees will be ground into wood chips, which will be available at the Coal Mountain Recycling Center for no cost. 

Residents are responsible for loading and hauling their own wood chips, but large deliveries of wood chips can be arranged by contacting Keep Georgia Beautiful.
