Bring One for the Chipper is Georgia’s annual Christmas tree recycling program. Each year, Keep Georgia Beautiful works with private sponsors to organize the recycling event. Statewide sponsors include The Home Depot, the Davey Tree Expert Co. and WXIA-TV. Local sponsors and volunteers also make contributions and provide in-kind services across the state.
The Chipper program involves hundreds of Georgia communities and thousands of volunteers. Since its inception, the program has recycled an estimated 5.9 million Christmas trees. The mulch from these trees has been used for playgrounds, local government beautification projects and individual yards.
Support the Chipper program – and make your house safer by removing a fire hazard – by bringing your cut Christmas tree to a designated drop off site or volunteering with your local coordinator to collect trees.
