Keep Troup Beautiful invites you to "Bring One for the Chipper" and recycle your Christmas tree after the holidays. As part of a statewide effort to reuse Christmas trees, Keep Troup Beautiful has joined with state spon- sors The Home Depot, Georgia Power, Georgia-Pacific Corporation, WXIA TV (Atlanta's NBC affiliate) and the Davey Tree Expert Company to spon- sor the 10th annual "Bring One for the Chipper" program. Troup County residents can drop off Christmas trees at West Georgia Commons Mall or one of the Troup County Convenience Centers (Christmas trees only, no yard clip- pings or yard trash). All trees accepted for recycling must be free of boards, nails, stands, tinsel and all ornaments. The trees will be chipped into mulch. As a thank you for recycling your Christmas tree on Saturday, January 6, between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. at West Georgia Commons Mall, free hardwood seedlings will be given to anyone recycling their tree. If you drop off your tree at one 0f the other locations prior to January 6, stop by on that Saturday and you can still get a free hardwood seedling. "This annual event diverts more than 300,000 Christmas trees annual- ly from landfills," said David Whitley, Chair of Keep Troup Beautiful pro- grain. "The trees will be recycled into mulch and people are welcome to pick up mulch on the 6th." The Christmas tree mulch will be available on January 6th at the land- fill on Greenville Road from 10:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m., weather permit- ting. SINCE 1991, "Bring One for the Chipper" has collected more than two million trees and provided one mil- lion tree seedlings to participants. Last year, 271,640 trees were recy- cled. The program produces tangible environmental benefits while help- ing local governments comply with state regulations that prohibit the dis- posal of yard trimmings in munici- pal landfills. According to Whitley, the recy- cling sites in Troup County are among the 400 plus sites throughout Georgia. The "Bring One for the Chipper" is sponsored locally by the City of LaGrange, City of West Point, City of Hogansville, Troup County govern- ment, and Keep Troup Beautiful. The LaGrange Junior Women's Club and Explorer Post 118 will be supporting the effort by providing volunteers to assist with the chipping and seedling distribution.
