Keep Forsyth County Beautiful Invites Residents to Recycle Their Christmas Tree After The Holidays

Keep Forsyth County Beautiful (KFCB) invites residents to recycle their Christmas trees during the annual ‘Bring One for the Chipper’ event from Dec. 26 through Jan. 29.

“Forsyth County has recycled well over a hundred thousand Christmas trees since the County began participating in the ‘Bring One for the Chipper’ program in 1994,” said Environmental Program Manager Tammy Wright. “All of the Christmas trees brought to us for recycling have either been placed in the lake as fish habitat or chipped into reusable mulch. We look forward to keeping trees out of landfills every year.”

Christmas trees can be dropped off at the following Forsyth County locations during the listed dates:

Home Depot - 1000 Market Place Blvd.

Home Depot - 2635 Peachtree Pkwy.

Jan. 8, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
