When the holiday season starts coming to a close, and your Christmas tree has served its festive purpose, give the tree a second life at the Bring One for the Chipper tree recycling event sponsored by Savannah/Hilton Head International. From December 25 to January 7, residents can dispose of their Christmas trees through Bring One for the Chipper by bringing them to the airport’s recycling lot on Aggett Drive.

For 29 years, Bring One for the Chipper has been Georgia’s annual holiday recycling tradition that works to keep Christmas trees out of landfills and off the sides of roads by repurposing them for eco-friendly projects. With hundreds of participating communities and thousands of volunteers, over 6 million Christmas trees have been recycled and used for playgrounds, city and county landscapes, and individual yards.

Before dropping off a Christmas tree, residents are asked to remove all lights, ornaments, wire, hooks, string, tinsel, and fake snow from the tree for a smooth recycling process. While at the drop-off site, residents are also encouraged to recycle any wrapping paper and cardboard boxes that may be left over from the holidays.

The Christmas trees brought to Savannah/Hilton Head International for Bring One for the Chipper will be chipped into mulch and used throughout the airport’s property for beautification projects, soil erosion prevention, and water retention efforts. The recycled trees will also be used to benefit the airport’s various lake and pond habitats. Through Bring One for the Chipper, residents’ recycled Christmas trees will allow the airport’s landscape to flourish for years to come.
