South Georgians prepare to "bring one for the chipper"

January 2, 2002

Lowndes County - South Georgians are being encouraged to recycle their Christmas trees. It's time for the annual "Bring One for the Chipper" tree recycling event.

People in Lowndes County can drop off their trees anytime this week at Home Depot, Mathis Auditorium, Wal-Mart Supercenter, or the Lowndes County recycling center. If you drop off your tree Saturday between 9 and 2, you'll receive a free dogwood seedling.

"The trees are going to be chipped up into mulch that will be taken to Freedom Park," said Aaron Strickland, Keep Valdosta/Lowndes Beautiful Director. "There are two rewards because people are recycling their trees and it's allowing the city to save money by not having to buy these landscaping materials."

People in Albany can recycle their trees at Fire Station #3 on Holly Drive, the YMCA outdoor sports park, and Home Depot.
