Milton residents are urged to recycle their Christmas trees through a program brought to the city by the Milton Grows Green (MGG) committee."Bring One for the Chipper" is a statewide program sponsored by the Georgia Forestry Commission. This program has existed across Georgia for several years, but is being brought to Milton for the first time by MGG with the generous support of Freeman's Tree Care. The mulch will be used in public beautification projects, helping to reduce costs for the city.Recycling will be available Saturday, Jan. 3 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Birmingham Fire Station, located at 750 Hickory Flat Road. All trees should be carefully checked to be sure that lights, ornaments, etc., have been removed. Seedlings, including dogwood, green ash and red cedar, will be given away on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last.Volunteers aged 12 to 96 are needed to help unload trees - no machinery contact involved. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer, or to request more information.
