Bring One For The Chipper on January 4th
118 Christmas trees locally recycled in 2019
Keep Pickens Beautiful annual 'Bring One For The Chipper' event is Saturday, January 4, 2020 from 9 am to 4 pm. Area residents will go green and drop off undecorated Christmas trees to be chipped into mulch or used as a wildlife habitat at the Park’n Ride across from the Pickens County Chamber of Commerce Building in Newton Park 500 Veterans Memorial Blvd. (500 Stegall Street).
The event educates the public on recycling and environmental conservation. It also allows communities to put discarded Christmas trees to good use. The program has been a holiday tradition in Georgia for 29 years and is the largest tree recycling program in the nation.
Pickens County residents recycled 118 Christmas trees in 2019, diverting them from landfills, and chipping them up into useful mulch. In this day of artificial Christmas trees, that’s not bad. Let’s see if we can do better in 2020 and set a new record.
