Bring One for the Chipper
Christmas tree recycling is held in conjunction with the Department of Community Affair’s Keep Thomas County Beautiful “Bring One for the Chipper” program. The event date is usually the 1st or 2nd Saturday of January. The mulch from these trees is used for playgrounds, local government beautification projects, and individual yards. You may bring your cut, undecorated tree to the Remington Recycling Center. As a gift for recycling your Christmas tree, seedlings are distributed while supplies last.
