The City of Chamblee and Keep Chamblee Beautiful invite residents to “Bring One for the Chipper” at Chamblee’s Public Works Facility (3210 Cumberland Dr. Chamblee, GA 30341) Saturday, January 3, 2015 from 9AM-1PM.

Bring One for the Chipper is Georgia’s annual Christmas tree recycling program. Non-Chamblee residents can visit www.KeepGeorgiaBeautiful.org for a zip code-based listing of drop-off centers near them.

Chamblee residents dropping off their tree will receive free seedlings for new tree plantings and information about the revitalization of Keep Chamblee Beautiful. There will also be free desserts and hot apple cider.

“After more than twenty years, Bring One for the Chipper remains one of our most popular programs. The trip to drop off the tree is a cherished holiday tradition for many Georgians and one that starts the New Year off right, focusing on making easy, sustainable choices.”, said Sarah Visser, Executive Director of the Keep Georgia Beautiful Foundation.

Since 1991, “Bring One for the Chipper,” has collected over 6 million trees for beneficial reuse. Chamblee has been participating in the event for over a decade now and we are proud to be part of such a great tradition.
