Keep Forsyth County Beautiful Provides Free Christmas Tree Recycling
Trees can be recycled at County Recycling Centers and various other locations

Keep Forsyth County Beautiful (KFCB) invites residents to recycle their Christmas trees during the annual ‘Bring One for the Chipper’ event through Jan. 30, 2021. Last year, Forsyth County recycled 3,701 trees. 

“Forsyth County has recycled 112,458 Christmas trees since the County began participating in the ‘Bring One for the Chipper’ program in 1994,” said Forsyth County 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.” 

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

Tolbert Street Recycling Convenience Center (351 Tolbert St.)
Old Atlanta Recycling Convenience Center (3678 Old Atlanta Road)

The County’s three Recycling Centers will be closed on Friday, Jan 1, 2021, in observance of New Year’s Day. The Centers will also be closed on Monday, Jan. 18, in observance Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
