Recycling Projects

CHIPPING OF THE GREENS

Chipping of the Greens is a recycling program for your discarded Christmas trees. Recycling Christmas trees helps save space in landfills, provides free mulch, and reminds the public of our solid-waste management problem. The idea was started in Jackson in 1981.

Keep Jackson Beautiful will be accepting trees the after Christmas until the second Saturday of January at drop-off locations in North and South Jackson.
The North Jackson drop-off site is 187 Stonebrook Place at the parking lot behind Petco.
The South Jackson drop-off location is 720 S. Highland at the City’s Fire Station Training Center in front of the Jackson Fairgrounds.
You may also call 425-8578 till the Thursday before the second Saturday for curbside pickup of your Christmas tree.
On the second Saturday of January from 9:00-11:00 a.m. at the Fire Training Station, Keep Jackson Beautiful Members and Master Gardener volunteers will provide the manpower to turn your old tree into small wood chips perfect for garden pathways or for composting. The wood chips will be bagged and available for pickup by the public at no charge on the day of the chipping. Only live trees are being accepted. Lights and ornaments should be removed, so trees can be fed through the chipping machine.
