Recycle Your Tree After Christmas

Forsyth County has recycled more than 80,000 Christmas trees since 1994

Keep Forsyth County Beautiful (KFCB) invites residents to continue their annual tradition of recycling thousands of Christmas trees during the “Bring One for the Chipper” Christmas tree recycling event from December 26 through January 25. Last year, Forsyth County residents recycled more than 8,700 trees.

Christmas trees can be dropped off at locations conveniently located throughout the county where a wood chipper will process the trees into mulch.

“Recycling Christmas trees provides a convenient way for residents to dispose of their tree and it is also good for the environment,” said Environmental Program Manager Tammy Wright. “We are excited to see the number of trees recycled in Forsyth County continue to increase every year.”

On the designated dates and times, Christmas trees can be dropped off at the following locations:
