LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. - Dec. 15, 2022 - PRLog -- Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful (GC&B) prides itself on bringing the community together for a wide variety of cleanup, educational and recycling events throughout the year. As 2022 winds to a close, the eco-focused nonprofit is preparing for its annual "treecycling" event – one of the largest in Georgia. In conjunction with its partners at the Gwinnett County Departments of Transportation, Parks & Recreation and Fire, as well as its community partners at Jackson EMC and Walton EMC, GC&B will collect live trees between December 26, 2022 and January 25, 2023 at fire stations throughout the county before transporting them to Bethesda Park for Bring One for the Chipper 2023 on January 28.

"To make this upcoming event as successful as in the past – if not more so – we'll really need the help of the public," said Schelly Marlatt, GC&B's Executive Director. "We're calling on everyone who has purchased a live tree this Christmas to drop them off at our collection sites instead of putting them out with the trash to decompose in a landfill. On the day of Bring One for the Chipper, we'll also need volunteers to help us haul those collected trees to the chipper, where they'll be transformed into mulch. From park pathways to school landscaping, this is our environmentally friendly way of extending the magic of Christmas all throughout the new year and all throughout the county."

Live trees must be free of lights, tinsel, decorations, and stands to be treecycled. Bring One for the Chipper drop off locations include:

Fire Stations 14, 24 and 29 in Buford
Fire Station 27 in Dacula
Fire Stations 5, 7, and 19 in Duluth
Fire Station 8 in Grayson
Fire Station 18 in Hoschton
Fire Stations 9, 10, 20, 25, and 31 in Lawrenceville
