For the second year, the Savannah Hilton Head International airport is hosting a drop off site for Georgia’s “Bring One for the Chipper” event.
The recycling program runs from December 26 through January 7, has been a holiday tradition in Georgia for more than 20 years and is the largest tree recycling program in the nation.
The drop off site is located at the airport recycle lot on Aggett Drive and you’re asked to remove all lights, string, wire, metal hooks, nails, ornaments, tinsel, fake snow and bags before dropping off trees.
While there, you can also drop off holiday wrapping paper and cardboard in the nearby recycling container which recycle lot is conveniently open to area residents year-round.
Recycled trees will be ground into mulch to provide ground cover that reduces soil erosion, and conserves water in landscaping at the airport. Some of the trees will also be used in the numerous airport lake and pond habitats.
