Suwanee Christmas tree recycling begins Wednesday

SUWANEE -- Once Christmas celebrations are over, Christmas trees can be recycled at Sims Lake Park beginning on Wednesday.

The city of Suwanee will participate in the Keep Georgia Beautiful program called "Bring One for the Chipper" where discarded Christmas trees will be turned into mulch at Suwanee parks. Trees will be accepted at Sims Lake Park, 4600 Suwanee Dam Road from Wednesday through Jan. 19.

On Jan. 5, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., residents who drop off their trees will receive flower and vegetable seed packets, while supplies last. Volunteers will also be available to help unload trees.

Adults and teens who would like to volunteer to help on Jan. 5 should contact Tammy Hiler at thiler@suwanee.com or 770-945-8996.
