Join the tradition and give a gift to nature this holiday season! Keep Columbia County Beautiful, Georgia Power & the Home Depot invite you to celebrate the 17th annual “Bring One For The Chipper” event and recycle your Christmas tree after the holidays.
Georgia residents are invited to bring their trees to the Home Depot located at 499 Bobby Jones Expressway on Saturday, January 6, 2007 from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm. Trees will be chipped into mulch or used as wildlife habitat. The mulch is used for public beautification projects and is available free to citizens.
In appreciation of their recycling efforts, participants will also receive a free dogwood seedling, while supplies last, from the Georgia Forestry Commission.
Since 1991, “Bring One For The Chipper,” has collected over 4.5 million trees nationally and provided over one million tree seedlings to participants. Last year, more than 225,000 trees were recycled. The program produces tangible environmental benefits while helping local governments comply with state regulations that prohibit the disposal of yard trimmings in lined municipal landfills.
