Bring One for the Chipper

Keep Oconee County Beautiful is sponsoring “Bring One for the Chipper 2019,” from December 26, 2018, through January 5, 2019, as part of a statewide effort to recycle Christmas trees. 

This annual event continues 28 years of tradition of actively participating in environmental education and stewardship by providing drop-off points in the community.  The Christmas trees are recycled by chipping them into mulch for use in landscaping, or by using them as fish or animal habitats. 

With 28 years of treecycling in Georgia, this is the largest event of its kind in the nation.  Since 1991, over 6 million Christmas trees have been diverted from landfills and put to a greater use.  Thank you very much for your awareness and cooperation in getting Christmas trees to a “mulch” better place.
