Christmas tree recycling is the one last thing you have to do to totally say goodbye to 2012. At Monte Hewett Homes, we are here to make even that last chore easy AND good for the environment! Don’t kick your Christmas tree to the curb – literally! Try a local Christmas tree recycling program, such as “Bring One for the Chipper”, to help the environment and to rid your living room of the Douglas fir from Christmas past.
Bring One for the Chipper is a statewide program dedicated to help people with Christmas tree recycling services. Sponsored by the Keep Georgia Beautiful campaign, Bring One for the Chipper has collected over five million Christmas trees since its start in 1991. This year’s Bring One for the Chipper drop-off day is January 5, 2013. Home Depot has set up area locations for Christmas tree recycling.

If you prefer curbside Christmas tree recycling, DeKalb and Fulton County residents can leave their tress curbside with some restrictions. The tree must be less than four feet tall and placed outside according to the schedule for yard debris pick-up. Please note the tree must be bare without any lights or decorations. If you live in the city of Decatur, Cub Scout Pack 134 is offering Free Christmas tree pickup service on Saturday, January 5, 2013. You can make a request for tree pickup by emailing Tom Atkinson at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call/text 404-441-2370. Agnes Scott will accept trees in their parking lot until January 6, 2013. Let’s keep Georgia beautiful by partaking in Christmas tree recycling. Happy New Year!
