Recycle your old Christmas tree

Bring One for the Chipper, the state’s annual Christmas tree recycling program, invites Georgia residents to bring their trees to local drop-off centers. For Polk County: any of the 6 convenience centers plus Home Depot in Cedartown. In Polk County, residents will receive a coupon which can be exchanged on January 9 for a free crepe myrtle seedling. Trees dropped off in Polk County in past years have been used mostly for fish habitats in local area lakes.
