Tis the season to Tree-cycle!  Keep Athens-Clarke County Beautiful would like to remind you to “Bring One for the Chipper”!  Join us at this year’s Christmas Tree-cycling event on Saturday, January 8th from 9am-1:00pm.  Give your tree a second life as compost, mulch, or fish habitat by bringing your undecorated tree to one of the seven drop-off locations and receive a free tree seedling in return. Christmas tree recycling will also be available before and after the 9th at selected locations or by setting your tree out with your regularly scheduled leaf and limb pick up.
