Christmas is over, so what to do with the Christmas tree?

Recycle that tree!

Bring One for the Chipper 2022!

Georgia Power, Liberty County Solid Waste, and Keep Liberty Beautiful will host the Liberty County Christmas tree recycling event this Saturday, January 8, 2022.

Keep Liberty Beautiful will offer the community free tree seedlings for each tree dropped off while they last. Vegetable and flower seed packets will also be available.

Volunteers will be on hand to direct traffic and help residents unload their trees.

We hope to see you at Bring One for tthe Chipper, even if you dropped off your tree earlier in the week. We plan to have so much fun on Saturday, January 8, 2022, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the new Location Hinesville Recycling Transfer Station on East Oglethorpe Highway (Highway 84) and Fraser Dr., across from McDonald’s.

How can you participate? If you would like to donate your tree, remove all the ornaments and the base, and bring it to the Hinesville Recycling Transfer Station parking lot between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. on January 8, 2022.

Trees can also be dropped off any time now till this Saturday, January 8, 2022. Please do not bring wreaths and garlands. The wire used to hold them together cannot be chipped.

This is the 31st year for the Bring One for the Chipper event. Keep Georgia Beautiful works with private sponsors to organize the recycling event each year. These statewide sponsors included The Home Depot, The Davey Tree Expert Company, Georgia Forestry Commission, and WXIA-TV.

Numerous local sponsors and volunteers also contribute and provide in-kind services across the state.

The Keep Georgia Beautiful Foundation spearheads this statewide event by bringing together news media, local governments, businesses, and industries to educate Georgians on recycling and environmental conservation. 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 mulch from these trees has been used for playgrounds, local government beautification projects, and individual yards. You can support the Chipper program by bringing your cut Christmas tree to a designated drop-off site or volunteering with your local coordinator like Keep Liberty Beautiful to collect trees.

So, remember to recycle your live Christmas trees for mulch by January 8, 2022, through the Bring One for the Chipper event. We will be giving away tree seedlings and have a hot cup of coffee waiting for you. If you want to learn more about recycling or know how to volunteer for Keep Liberty Beautiful, you can call (912) 880-4888 or email
