Keep Roswell Beautiful is celebrating its 22nd annual “Bring One for the Chipper” Christmas tree recycling event this weekend.
Roswell residents are invited to bring their trees to one of the two Home Depot locations in Roswell on Saturday, Jan. 7, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
As part of a statewide effort to reuse Christmas trees, Keep Roswell Beautiful has joined with sponsors The Home Depot, 11Alive, The Davey Tree Expert Company, Keep Georgia Beautiful, Ferry-Morse Seed Company, Kiwanis Club of Historic Roswell, Starbucks and Super Target to sponsor the “Bring One for the Chipper” program.
The two Home Depot locations are on Holcomb Bridge Road in Holcomb Woods Shopping Center and Woodstock Road across from Publix. Trees will be chipped into mulch and will be available for delivery to the public by Davey Tree. Residents are asked to please not drop off trees prior to the 7th of January.
In appreciation of their recycling efforts, participants will also receive seed packets courtesy of Ferry-Morse Seed Company, while supplies last.
Last year, more than 8,000 trees were collected in Roswell.
