MILTON, Ga. Get those lights off and stock up on tie downs, because Saturday, Jan. 4 the City of Milton and Milton Grows Green (MGG) will once again offer Christmas tree recycling as part of Georgia's "Bring One for the Chipper" program.

This year residents may take Christmas trees to multiple locations:

Scottsdale Farms, 15639 Birmingham Highway

Milton High School, 13025 Birmingham Highway

Home Depot, 5300 Windward Parkway

Dogwood saplings will be handed out Jan. 4 to residents as quantities last and are donated by the Rotary Club of Alpharetta.

Volunteers from the Milton Chapter of the Young Men's Service League and the Alpharetta Rotary Club will offer assisted drop-off from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Jan. 4 at Scottsdale Farms and Milton High. Tree chipping services are provided by Casey Tree Experts.

Additionally, Milton Boy Scout Troop 841 will pick up trees and recycle them for a donation of $15. To schedule a pick-up, e-mail treepickup841@yahoo.com.

"We appreciate the community's awareness and cooperation in getting Christmas trees to a 'mulch' better place," said Cindy Eade, Milton's sustainability coordinator.

Organizers hope to see growth similar to last year's Chipper effort. In 2013, Milton residents brought more than 500 trees to be chipped. They were used for mulch at local schools and in animal and fish habitats.

With more than 22 years of treecycling in Georgia, Bring one For the Chipper is the largest event of its kind in the nation. Since 1991, more than 5.7 million Christmas trees have been diverted from landfills and put to a greater use.

For more information about the chipper event, to get free mulch delivered, or to volunteer, please contact mgg@cityofmiltonga.us.
