Each year following the holidays, the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area runs victim to the illegal dumping of Christmas trees and other types of debris. Not only does removal of the waste cost the park significantly, but the trees could potentially contain contaminants, which pose a threat to the flora and fauna of the local environment.
The Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area supports Keep Georgia Beautiful, and encourages the public’s participation in the Bring One for the Chipper program.
On January 6, 2007, Keep Georgia Beautiful will hold its annual Christmas tree recycling event at locations throughout the state. Participating drop-off points include Home Depot stores in and around the Atlanta area, the Chamblee Civic Center, and several other locations.
