You know who you probably haven’t gotten a Christmas gift for? The Earth.
Don’t worry, Cobb County has you covered.
The county parks staff will recycle your Christmas tree for free and turn that yultetide spirit symbol into mulch, fuel, wildlife habitats and other eco-friendly materials.
You can drop off your trees at four Cobb County Parks and Recreation locations from Dec. 26 to Jan. 15:
♦ Lost Mountain Park, 4845 Dallas Highway in Powder Springs
♦ Noonday Creek Park, 489 Hawkins Store Road in Kennesaw
♦ Sewell Park, 2085 Lower Roswell Road in Marietta
♦ Fullers Park, 3499 Robinson Road in Marietta
You can also recycle your trees at nine Cobb locations of Home Depot on Jan. 7 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Free mulch will be available after Jan. 9.
Or if it’s more convenient, you can recycle your tree in Fulton County.
