Now that Christmas is over, are you looking for a way to dispose of that live tree? Bring One for the Chipper! Keep Rome-Floyd Beautiful will host their annual “Bring One for the Chipper” tree recycling event on Saturday, January 8th from 10 am to 12 pm in the parking lot of Home Depot, 103 Hicks Drive. Those who dispose of their trees at the event will be bestowed a Dogwood or a Northern Red Oak seedling as a ‘thank you’. Decorations must be removed from all Christmas trees in advance.
The local “Bring One for the Chipper”, held alongside the City of Rome Tree Board, is part of a statewide initiative spearheaded annually by Keep Georgia Beautiful. Over six million trees have been recycled since the program began more than three decades ago.
