Residents encouraged to Recycle Cardboard and “Bring One for the Chipper”

Hall County is participating in the "Bring One for the Chipper" event again this year.

“Following the Christmas holiday, we will accept undecorated live Christmas trees and wreaths and will recycle them for free,” said Bobby Purdum, Hall County Resource Recovery supervisor.

The event, which lasts from Dec. 26 to Jan. 7, is part of the statewide Christmas “tree-cycling” program.

Purdum said Hall County's 12 compactor sites and the Hall County Recycling Center on Chestnut Street will be participating. The trees will be mulched, keeping them out of the Hall County Landfill.

City of Gainesville residents can leave their trees curbside for pick-up, and Oakwood residents can drop their trees at the corner of Allen and Railroad streets. Mulch is offered at the Hall County Landfill free of charge Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., weather permitting.

Officials ask that all decorations be removed from the trees before drop off. Artificial trees will not be accepted.

Trees may be dropped off at the following compactor sites between 7:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Sundays:

Candler Compactor - 5064 Poplar Springs Rd. Gainesville, Ga 30507

Murrayville Compactor - 5113 Thompson Bridge Road, Gainesville, GA 30506

Lula Compactor - 6174 Lula Road, Lula, GA 30554

Wauka Mountain Compactor - 5800 Brookton-Lula Road, Gainesville, GA 30506-2909

Sardis Road Compactor - 3166 Brackett Drive Gainesville, GA 30506

East Crescent Drive Compactor - 734 East Crescent Drive, Gainesville, GA 30501

Gould Lane Compactor - 1277 Hillside Gardens Lane, Gainesville, GA 30504

Tadmore Compactor - 3320 Holly Springs Road, Gainesville, GA 30507

Balus Creek Compactor - 3845 Old Flowery Branch Road, Flowery Branch, GA 30566

Blackshear Place Compactor - 2921 Atlanta Highway Gainesville, GA 30507

Flowery Branch Compactor- 4395 Falcon Parkway Flowery Branch, GA 30542

Gaines Ferry Compactor - 6173 Gaines Ferry Road Flowery Branch, GA 30542

 

Trees may also be dropped off at the Hall County Recycling Center, located at 1008 Chestnut Street in Gainesville, Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“Bring One for the Chipper” is sponsored locally by Hall County’s Resource Recovery and Solid Waste departments with statewide sponsorship provided by the Keep Georgia Beautiful Foundation.

In addition to “Bring One for the Chipper,” Hall County also offers an easy and convenient means to dispose of unwanted cardboard boxes.  Each compactor site as well as the Hall County Recycling Center located on Chestnut Street has several cardboard recycling containers available.  The County requests that the boxes be broken down before placing them in the recycling containers.  Breaking the cardboard down, rather than leaving the boxes intact, will provide much more space in the containers.  With more room provided, this will allow everyone the convenience of recycling their cardboard boxes.  This will also lessen the buildup of cardboard on the ground at the compactor sites.

“We are strongly encouraging residents to take advantage of these recycling opportunities this holiday season as Hall County continues its study into the potential for a larger recycling facility to meet the needs of this community,” said Hall County Public Works Director Ken Rearden.
