Christmas Tree Recycling in Forsyth County

Forsyth County has recycled more than 100,000 Christmas trees since 1994

After the ornaments are removed from the Christmas tree, Keep Forsyth County Beautiful (KFCB) invites residents to continue their annual tradition of recycling thousands of trees during the “Bring One for the Chipper” Christmas tree recycling event from December 26th through January 30th.

Christmas trees can be dropped off at locations conveniently located throughout the county where a wood chipper will process the trees into mulch.

“More and more Forsyth County residents recycle their trees every year,” said Environmental Program Manager Tammy Wright. “We are looking forward to another great turnout.”

On the designated dates and times, Christmas trees can be dropped off at the following locations:
