Keep Troup Beautiful members, from left, on the ground, Scott Allen, Mac McGowan and Howard Mingo Sr. help Mike Sibley load trees into the back of his truck Saturday morning in the Home Depot parking lot as part of the annual Bring One for the Chipper event. Sibley planned to use the trees for fish habitats on West Point Lake. Keep Troup Beautiful didn’t have as many trees as in previous years dropped off at the site, so didn’t use the titular chipper, but all trees were taken to be re-used for fish habitats. The event did net a large load of electronics to be recycled.
