Keep Statesboro-Bulloch Beautiful and the City of Statesboro will offer their seasonal holiday program “Operation Safe Disposal” for Statesboro residents again this year. The program provides citizens a safe alternative to disposing of boxes for TVs, computer gaming systems, sound systems, or other valuables received during the Christmas holidays. By providing separate waste containers, citizens do not have to place such items curbside for potential burglars to see in neighborhoods.
Waste containers will be provided for residents to drop off gift boxes, packing materials, and wrapping paper only from Tuesday, December 27 through Tuesday, January 3 at the following four locations:
- •Statesboro Police Department (25 W Grady St)
- Statesboro Fire Department Station #2 (1533 Fair Rd)
- Statesboro Public Works (5 Braswell St)
- Statesboro Wastewater Treatment Plant (302 Briarwood Rd)
No Christmas trees, household garbage, yard waste or other such items should be placed in these containers. Residents looking to dispose of or recycle their Christmas trees, can participate in Keep Statesboro-Bulloch Beautiful’s “Bring One for the Chipper” event which will last through January 14, 2022.
There will be two locations for citizens to recycle their Christmas trees. City of Statesboro Public Works will host a drop-off location for trees beginning December 27, 2022, through January 13, 2023, during normal operating hours. AgSouth Farm Credit will host a drop-off and chipping event in its rear parking lot on Saturday, January 14 from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
- AgSouth Farm Credit (40 S Main St, Statesboro, GA, 30458).
- City of Statesboro Public Works (5 Braswell St, Statesboro, GA, 30458).
Those who bring their Christmas tree to be recycled on January 14 at Ag South Farm Credit will be thanked with complimentary seeds for planting, seedlings, and free mulch upon request.
