Don’t toss your tree away; recycle it


Instead of throwing your yuletide tree to the curb after the holidays, consider taking the time to donate it for a good cause.

Keep Cobb Beautiful will sponsor free tree recycling drop-offs throughout Cobb County 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 6. The trees will be used to create mulch, fuel, wildlife habitats and other useful materials. Please note that no trees will be accepted with decorations still attached. All decorations, mesh and strings must be removed before they can be dropped off.

Trees will be accepted at select Home Depot and Cobb County Park locations. These include:

Lost Mountain Park, 4845 Dallas Highway, Powder Springs
Noonday Creek, 489 Hawkins Store Road, Kennesaw
Fullers Park, 3499 Robinson Road, Marietta
