Valdosta Residents Have Few Days Left To Take Part In Christmas Tree Recycling Event

MGN Online

South Georgia residents have a few days left to dispose of their Christmas trees at a recycling event. The “Bring one for the Chipper” event in Valdosta ends Saturday.

The Christmas tree recycling event has many sponsors, including the City of Valdosta and Keep Lowndes-Valdosta Beautiful. It started just after Christmas Day last year and will continue through Saturday.

So, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday and Saturday, residents can still drop off their used trees at the following locations: the Home Depot on Norman Drive, the Super Walmart on Inner Perimeter Road, and Mathis City Auditorium on North Ashley Street.

Each person who delivers a tree at any of those locations on Saturday only will receive a free tree seedling.
