The city of Suwanee invites area residents to recycle their live Christmas trees during its “treecycling” campaign, part of the Keep Georgia Beautiful Foundation’s annual Bring One for the Chipper program.
Local residents can drop off trees free of decorations, lights and stands at Sims Lake Park at 4600 Suwanee Dam Road now through Saturday, Jan. 8.
Volunteers will be on hand from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 8, to assist with unloading trees.
Those interested in volunteering to assist during Suwanee’s Bring One for the Chipper event can contact Nicole Schnepper at firstname.lastname@example.org or 770-945-8996.
In 2020, mulch from almost 1,200 trees was spread in Suwanee parks.
