When Christmas is over, what to do with that tree? Try “treecycling”

It happens every year: you’ve loved the glow and sparkle of your Christmas tree, and now you’re wondering, “What should I do with this tree in my house?”

As the Christmas season ends, the company’s branches Keep Georgia Beautiful Foundation offers ways to recycle your live Christmas tree.

The statewide group has about 200 sites across the state set aside for what they call a “tree trail.” This basically means shredding and mulching. Asha Ellen of Keep Macon-Bibb Beautiful said there are really good reasons to drive in a tree.

Well, thing #1 is we want to absolutely protect and preserve our landfills; our landfills are already full“, – said Ellen.

Ellen said not every fallen tree finds a second life as a safe place to fall on a playground. Sometimes trees are also lowered into lakes for fish habitat.

All Keep Georgia Beautiful tree treatment areas will be mulched together on January 7th during the annual event Bring One For The Chipper event. Most membership groups will still take trees before and after this.
