Warner Robins hosts its annual “Great Christmas Tree Round-up”

WARNER ROBINS, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – It’s time to recycle your holiday tree during the Great Christmas Tree Round-up.

Keep Warner Robins Beautiful teamed up with Flint Energies to turn used Christmas trees into mulch. 

The organization is asking people to drop off their Christmas trees at 151 Maple Street in Warner Robins. The campaign is going everyday through January 10. You can drop your trees off between 8:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.

For each tree received, KWRB is giving away seedlings.

Last year, KWRB collected enough trees to create three to four tons of mulch.

“It’s a great community service, it kind of cuts out the middle man,” Debra Jones, the executive director of KWRB, said. “So the city doesn’t have to work as hard picking up trees on the side of the street. They get to reuse the mulch that we collect in the city parks.”

This year, organizers are expecting several thousand Christmas trees.
