  • Non-rechargeable household batteries
  • Aerosols, including aerosol paint
  • Automotive brake fluid/used motor oil filters (no other automotive fluids)

The Environmental Quality Company will be handling and disposing of the materials for the City of Roswell, so materials can’t be dropped off prior to the event.

Only Roswell residents can participate, so remember to bring proof of residency with you, such as a Roswell utility bill or the City of Roswell sticker. Your driver’s license will also be accepted. Also, this is for households only – no business or commercial waste disposal will be allowed.

Bring One for the Chipper in Roswell

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.
