What exactly is a Tree-Cycle? A Tree-Cycle is when you Recycle your Real (not artificial) Christmas tree after the holiday is over. It allows your Christmas tree to return to the earth as usable mulch and not end up in a landfill. It's great for the environment.
We're on Doodie's Tree-Cycle has so many benefits. If Forsyth County residents are looking for a way to give back to their community and help out the environment, this is it.
We are proud to announce our 2nd Annual We’re on Doodie Tree-Cycle Benefiting the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Department K9 Unit.
For a small donation of $20, We’re on Doodie will be collecting real (not artificial) discarded Christmas trees and hauling them to the Home Depot in Cumming to be recycled into mulch. The mulch is customarily given away for free. Residents can always give more if their heart allows.
We’re on Doodie, established in 2007, is a pet waste removal or pooper scooper company. The company is owned by Dawson County resident and former Forsyth County Firefighter, Michael McCarthy. We’re on Doodie has operated in Forsyth County and surrounding areas since 2007. We’re on Doodie has also been providing pet waste removal services for some of Forsyth County’s K9 officers.
It is an honor and a privilege to put together this Tree-Cycle program aimed at raising money to outfit our K9 Officers and handlers with the gear and equipment they need to do their job and complete their missions. The K9 Unit is a vital resource that helps keep our communities safe.
The Tree-Cycle is also a way for Michael to honor the memory of his father, William “Jerry” McCarthy, who died in the line of duty in 2013. McCarthy was killed in a high speed pursuit while working for the Shenango Township Police Department in New Castle, Pennsylvania. McCarthy also worked for the Lawrence County District Attorney as a Pet Detective, working animal cruelty cases. “My dad was a dog lover. He had such a respect and compassion for all animals, but especially dogs. He worked very closely with the K9 Units that surrounded his community. This program is a great way for me to honor his memory and stay close to what he loved”.
We’re on Doodie and friends will be collecting discarded real (not artificial) Christmas trees on Saturday January 5th, 2019. This date should give everyone time to enjoy their tree and not feel rushed to get it out of the house. When it is time to get the tree out of the house, We’re on Doodie is asking for residents to leave the tree in the yard near the house. If it is left by the curb it could be taken by a garbage company an end up in a landfill.
100% of the proceeds will be used to purchase gear and equipment for the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Department K9 Unit. Naturally, the amount of money collected will dictate what can be purchased. The K9 Unit will prioritize and select items based off of the total dollars donated.
We are hoping for a very successful event and we are looking forward to making this a holiday tradition.
Michael A. McCarthy
