VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) – You can put your discarded Christmas Tree to good use in Lowndes County.

From now until Saturday January 8th you can bring your trees Home Depot, Mathis Auditorium, or Walmart on Inner Perimeter.  Saturday you can trade in your tree for a free seedling at these sites.

The trees will be chipped to mulch or used as a wildlife habitat. Keep Lowndes Valdosta Beautiful hosts the event to keep trees from going to the landfill.

"It's a more responsible way for folks to get rid of their Christmas Trees. Last year we collected about 509. and since 2000 we collected 10,510," said Aaron Strickland, of Keep Lowndes Valdosta Beautiful.

These are additional sites in Lowndes County to drop off your trees from now until Jan. 7:

Valdosta YMCA (2424 Gornto Road)

Lowndes County Industrial Blvd. Recycling Center (345 Gil Harbin Blvd. This site is for Lowndes County solid waste permit holders only.)

City of Hahira (Corner of Lawson and North Lowndes Streets)
