Bring One for the Chipper

We had a very successful Chipper event this year with 72 volunteers helping to organize eight local Christmas tree drop-off sites around Athens-Clarke County. In total, over 277 citizens recycled 14.1 tons of Christmas trees and 409 seedling and 182 seed packets were distributed! Thank you so much to all the locations that hosted and all of our wonderful volunteers for staffing the sites.

If you missed the Chipper and have a tree to recycle: Undecorated trees put out for leaf and limb will  be recycled. Check the Leaf & Limb schedule to determine the pick-up schedule for your zone. You can also drop off Christmas trees at the Athens-Clarke County Landfill for recycling free of charge.
