Kicking off Keep Golden Isles Beautiful’s annual Bring One for the Chipper Christmas tree recycling campaign, The Home Depot in Brunswick recently awarded five local members of the Boys & Girls Club of Southeast Georgia with live Christmas trees of their very own.
To promote the KGIB Christmas tree recycling effort, the students participated in an art contest to design their ultimate Christmas tree. The winning artists also received certificates, ornaments and KGIB goodie bags.
In last year’s Chipper effort, 3,423 organic Christmas trees were recycled in Glynn County, becoming mulch or biofuel. Eight community drop off sites will be available this year December 26-January 7 for real Christmas trees (no artificial trees, no decorations) and locations can be found at KGIB.ORG. January 8-12 non-working string holiday lights can be dropped off at Old City Hall (1229 Newcastle Street, downtown Brunswick) for recycling.
Sponsored by Colonel K9’s Dog Doo Removal and partnering with the Brunswick Downtown Development Authority.
