Residents can also bring old lights and ornaments as long as they are already off the trees.
New this year is a chance to recycle electronics at the same time.
“Traditionally, this has been about recycling Christmas trees, but our electronics recycling days are among our more popular events,” said Johns Creek Solid Waste Manager James Swope. “We thought that a lot of people would be getting new electronic gadgets, and this offers people an environmentally safe way to recycle of their old electronics. So we’re doing Christmas trees and electronics.”
Residents can drop off:
• Computers, monitors, printers, laptops, keyboards, mice, cords and wires
• Televisions ($10 per TV, $25 for 35-inch screens or bigger and projection TVs), stereos, fax machines and copiers
• Cell phones, telephones, batteries and cardboard
Items not accepted:
• Items containing Freon or mercury or household hazardous waste
• Traditional or CFL light bulbs or liquids
The Davey Tree Expert Company will chip the trees into mulch, which will be used for playgrounds, public beautification projects and wildlife habitat and landscaping projects. Mulch will also be available free to residents upon request.
"Bring One for the Chipper" takes place Saturday, Jan. 5, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at The Home Depot, 5950 State Bridge Road.
