Bring One for the Chipper in Roswell

January 3, 2015
9:00 amto4:00 pm

Join the tradition and give a gift to nature this holiday season! Keep Roswell Beautiful invites residents to give nature a gift this holiday season by recycling their Christmas trees at the 24th annual “Bring One for the Chipper” event on January 3, 2015.

Last year, Roswell recycled the most trees per capita in the state of Georgia through the “Bring One for the Chipper” program. To honor this accomplishment, Keep Georgia Beautiful recently recognized Keep Roswell Beautiful with the First Place Award for the 2014 “Bring One for the Chipper” event.


To continue in its effort to encourage residents to reuse and recycle Christmas trees, Keep Roswell Beautiful has once again joined with sponsors The Home Depot, 11 Alive, The Davey Tree Expert Company and the Keep Georgia Beautiful Foundation to sponsor the “Bring One for the Chipper” program locally.

Residents are invited to bring their undecorated trees to one of the two Home Depot locations in Roswell on Saturday, January 3, 2015, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.:

• Home Depot, Holcomb Bridge Road (Holcomb Woods Shopping Center)
• Home Depot, 870 Woodstock Road (across from Publix)

Trees will be chipped into mulch and will be available for delivery to the public by Davey Tree. In appreciation of their recycling efforts, participants will receive a special gift, while supplies last.

Residents are asked to please not drop off trees prior January 3.

Last year, more than 9,000 trees were collected in Roswell.

For more information or to volunteer at the event, please visit the following websites: www.keeproswellbeautiful.org or www.roswellgov.com.

Santa Claus is Coming to Roswell

santa heading to roswell georgia

Great news. It appears that Santa is on schedule and is working hard to deliver toys to good boys and girls around the world. So it may be time to get the cookies and milk ready and get the kids tucked into their beds for the night. Santa is on his way to the Roswell area, so be ready. Santa was most recently seen in The Netherlands.

If you’re one of those people who have actually lit a fire in their fireplace in this warm weather, make sure you put it out before Santa arrives. He never likes it when his britches get singed.

Also, if you want to keep up to date on Santa’s progress, click here for the Santa Tracker.

And as an added bonus, you can now track Santa on your iPhone or Android phone. There’s an app for that!

Happy Holidays from the team here at AllAboutRoswell.com.
