Valdosta - The city of Valdosta is also recycling Christmas trees.

The city's annual "Bring one for the chipper" recycling event is underway.

People who live in the city can just put their tree curbside.

Several drop off locations are set up for those outside the city.

The program assures your dead tree will go to good use.  "They are brought to our compost sight. We go ahead and grind those up, turn it into mulch and the end process is to mix some food scraps and waste with it and turn it into usable compost," says Public Works Director John Whitehead.

Home Depot, Mathis City Auditorium, Lowe's and Wal-Mart on Inner Perimeter road will serve as drop-off locations through January Fifth.
