Released December 13, 2016 06:29 PM

Christmas Tree Mulch Request Form

The Alpharetta Natural Resources Commission, City of Alpharetta, Keep Georgia Beautiful and partners invite you to recycle your old Christmas tree after the holidays during the 26th Annual “Bring One for the Chipper”.  On Saturday, January 7th from 9:00 AM until 3:00 PM Alpharetta residents can bring their trees to The Home Depot located at 5300 Windward Parkway.

 

 

Trees will be chipped into mulch by the Davey Tree Expert Company.  Mulch is then used for public beautification projects and is available free to Alpharetta citizens, schools and anyone who needs it.  To request mulch, please fill out the Christmas Tree Mulch Request Form.  Ferry Morse Seed Company has provided garden seed that will be available in exchange for your tree, while supplies last.

 

This program is part of a statewide effort to reuse Christmas trees.  Keep Georgia Beautiful and the Georgia Department of Community Affairs have joined with corporate sponsors: The Home Depot, 11 Alive and the Davey Tree Expert Company to sponsor this recycling program.  Our local sponsors are the Windward Parkway Home Depot, The Alpharetta Rotary Club and the Alpharetta Young Men’s Service League. 

 

Information for all drop-off areas is available by zip code on the “Bring One for the Chipper” web site http://www.keepgeorgiabeautiful.org/bring_one_for_chipper.asp.  Since 1991 “Bring One for the Chipper” has collected more than six million trees and provided over one million tree seedlings to participants.  Last year more than 250,000 trees were recycled.  The program produces tangible environmental benefits.
