Christmas trees can be recycled to create fuel, mulch, habitats for wildlife and other useful materials.

Keep Cobb Beautiful offers Christmas tree recycling through East Cobb Home Depots as well. In appreciation of your recycling efforts, recyclers will receive a seedling while supplies smyrna-vinings-bring-one-for-chipperlast.

The Chipper program involves hundreds of Georgia communities and thousands of volunteers. Since its inception, the program has recycled over 5 million Christmas trees. The mulch from these trees has been used for playgrounds, local government beautification projects, and individual yards.
