Don’t know what to do with your Christmas tree now that the holiday season is coming to an end? As in year’s past, you can do your part to keep Christmas trees from taking up valuable space in the Hall County Landfill by participating in the “Bring One for the Chipper” event again this year.
Hall County’s 12 compactor sites and the Hall County Recycling Center on Chestnut Street will be receiving undecorated Christmas trees through Wednesday, Jan. 31, 2021.
City of Gainesville residents and City of Flowery Branch residents can leave their trees curbside for pick-up by their respective cities.
Oakwood residents can drop their trees in the vacant lot at the corner of Allen and Railroad Streets through Saturday, Jan. 16, 2021.
“After the trees are collected, the trees will be turned into mulch, therefore, keeping the trees out of the Hall County Landfill,” Hall County Resource Recovery Supervisor Bobby Purdum said. “Mulch generated from the trees will be available at the Hall County Landfill free of charge Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., weather permitting, beginning Jan. 4, 2021.”
Officials ask that all trees be undecorated before drop off. Artificial trees will not be accepted.
