Don’t trash that Christmas tree, recycle it this Saturday

On my evening walk today I passed a Christmas tree set out on the sidewalk for collection by sanitation workers. Not only did it impede pedestrian traffic, there are much better things to do with trees after the holiday season has concluded. The City of Savannah is holding its annual Bring One for the Chipper event Jan. 7, from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the following locations:

· Home Depot, 11180 Abercorn St.
· Home Depot, 190 Pooler Parkway
· Home Depot, 1901 Victory Drive
· Dean Forest Landfill, 1325 Dean Forest Road
· Bacon Park Landfill, Shorty Cooper Road
· Wilmington Island Landfill, 7022 Concord Road

Christmas trees dropped off at this locations will be converted to mulch and used in neighborhood beautification projects. More information is available on the City of Savannah website.
