Christmas will be here and gone before you know it. And once that tree comes down, you can give it new life by helping keep Gwinnett County beautiful.
Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful is asking you to donate your old trees to their annual "Bring One for the Chipper" tree recycling campaign. The trees will be turned into mulch to use in locations throughout the county.
From December 26th and January 16, 2012, Gwinnett County residents can take their undecorated Christmas trees to one of several locations for recycling. In Lawrenceville, they include:
- Fire Station 9, 1900 Five Forks-Trickum Rd., 30044
- Fire Station 15, 275 S. Perry St., 30046
- Fire Station 20, 1801 Cruse Rd., 30044
- Fire Station 25, 3575 Lawrenceville Hwy., 30044

On Saturday, January 21st the collected trees will be taken to , where they will be shredded. Much of the mulch will then be used to help keep Gwinnett County Parks beautiful.
Volunteers are also in need for the big shred in January. Anyone over the age of 14 can sign up on Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful's website.
