Bring One for the Chipper returning to Hall Co.

By Ken Stanford Reporter
GAINESVILLE - More waste enters the Hall County Landfill during December than any other month, according to county officials. But, they say, you can help by giving your Christmas tree a new leaf on life by supporting the annual "Bring One for the Chipper" campaign.

Once the stand and all the ornaments have been removed, simply leave the tree at designated areas at any of the county's trash compactor sites or at the county recycling center on Chestnut Street in Gainesville.

Gainesville residents may leave their trees at curbside. Oakwood city residents may drop off their Christmas trees on the vacant lot next to the mulch pile on the corner of Allen Street and Railroad Street. Flowery Branch will have a collection site roped off next to the caboose on Railroad Avenue. Trees will be collected there for chipping from Dec. 26-Jan. 3.

The trees will be used for free mulch which will be available - along with free loading - the week of Jan. 8 at the county's recycling center from 8:30-3:00, Monday-Friday, until the supply is exhausted.

For more information, call 770-535-8284.

NOTE: A number of locations in Forsyth and Gwinnett counties also are participating in the 2014 Bring One for the Chipper campaign.
