Drop your Christmas Tree off for recycling in Cobb County until January 8

Welcome to Cobb County brick sign at Henderson Road on Veterans Memorial

This is just a reminder that there is a one-week window left for doing the environmentally correct thing. Bring your used Christmas tree to one of the locations listed below.

Christmas trees and decorations that stay up until July 4th are a much joked-about thing, but if you want to make certain your tree gives back to the Earth through recycling, there are a number of locations around the county where you can drop them off, where they will be put through chippers for use as mulch.

Just make sure you’ve removed the decorations!

The following was posted to the Keep Cobb Beautiful news page on the Cobb County website:

Bring One for the Chipper is the state of Georgia’s annual Christmas tree recycling program.  As a Keep Georgia Beautiful Foundation affiliate, Keep Cobb Beautiful works with sponsors to organize the recycling event for Cobb County.  These sponsors include:  The Home Depot, The Davey Tree Expert Company, TAG Grinding Services Inc., and Cobb County Parks.  Numerous local sponsors and volunteers also make contributions and provide in-kind services.

Since its inception, the program has recycled an estimated 6 million Christmas trees state wide.  The mulch from these trees has been used for playgrounds, local government beautification projects, and individual yards.  To receive free mulch from these trees, please email KeepCobbBeautiful@cobbcounty.org

The Chipper program involves the entire community and countless volunteers.  If you or your group would like to volunteer with us on January 8, 2022, (10:00 AM- 2:00 PM) to collect trees at one of the designated areas, please contact us!  

There is no limit on the amount of trees that can be dropped off.  Trees must be stripped of all decorations.  No “Flocked” trees can be accepted as it is hazardous to wildlife. 

Bring your live Christmas tree from 12/25/2021 – 01/08/2022 to one of the participating Home Depots or the 1 participating Cobb County Park.
