Updated:ATLANTA — Recycle your Christmas trees anytime between now and January 8 at the Sidney Marcus and Ponce de Leon Home Depots.
Just look for the cordoned off areas in the parking lot.
On January 8, members of Buckhead Boy Scout Troop 298 will help Keep Atlanta Beautiful and Davey Tree Company recycle the trees for the "Bring One for the Chipper" annual Christmas Tree recycling program.
Since 1991, "Bring One for the Chipper," has collected over 5 million trees. 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. The mulch from these trees has been used for playgrounds, local government beautification projects, and residential yards. The high quality, weed-free and pest-free mulch can be obtained for your large-scale landscaping project free of charge. Contact Davey Tree Service at 770-451-7911.
