The city of Atlanta and DeKalb County will pick up Christmas trees left at the curb on your regular yard debris pickup day.
If you don't want to wait, you can take part in the Keep Atlanta Beautiful "Bring One for the Chipper" event.
Please be kind to the Keep Atlanta Beautiful volunteers by removing all lights and decorations from your trees before you drop them off. And don't drop them off in bags or baled in wire because they cannot be run through the chipping machines that way.
These are the closest dropoff locations:
Midtown Home Depot
650 Ponce DeLeon, Atlanta, GA 30308 - Members of the Keep Atlanta Beautiful Board of Directors will be on hand at this location.
Accepting trees now through Friday, January 11, 2013.
Buckhead Home Depot
2525 Piedmont Rd. NE, Atlanta, GA 30324 - Boy Scout Troop 298 will be on site to assist you with your tree!
Accepting trees now through Saturday, January 12, 2013.
The trees may be recycled in a variety of ways, including being ground into mulch to be used in area parks.
When do you take down your tree? New Year's morning? Or do you leave it up until the Epiphany on Jan. 6? Tell us about your family tradition in the comments area below.
