Now that Christmas is over, you can once again recycle those live Christmas Trees.
This year’s Bring One for the Chipper event in Rome is Saturday, January 4, from 10 a.m. until noon in the Home Depot parking lot on Hicks Drive.
The Chipper program involves hundreds of Georgia communities and thousands of volunteers.
Since its inception, the program has recycled an estimated 6 million Christmas trees.
The program transforms a large number of trees into mulch or recycled into fish habitat in lakes.
