Christmas is just around the corner.  Soon our Park Canyon Apartment residents will be unwrapping gifts from under the Christmas tree and enjoying the holidays with friends and family.  If won’t be long before you are taking down the decorations and asking yourself what do I do with the Christmas tree after the holidays are over.

Not to worry.  Keep Dalton-Whitfield Beautiful, Inc. will be working with the Home Depot parking lot located at 875 Shugart Road in Dalton to collect holiday trees and electronics on January 3, 2015 from 9 am-1 pm.  Residents can drop-off their Christmas trees for free.  Trees must be free of ornaments, nails, hooks, wire, tinsel, lights, and other decorations.  Only natural, live, real trees will be accepted – no artificial trees please.  Trees will be recycled on site into mulch that will be used for beautification projects throughout Whitfield County.

Used electronic devices accepted for no charge include computers, digital cameras, video cameras, cell phones, gaming systems and components, mp3 players, scanners, and laptops.  However, old CRT television sets and computer monitors can be drop-off for a recycling fee of $5.00.  Large projection television sets, which usually have wheels on the bottom, will be charged a $10.00 recycling fee.  There is no charge for newer flat screen television sets or computer monitors. Electronics will be processed by Reworx Recycling, which is part of the Tommy Nobis’ Foundation program NobisWorks.
