Christmas tree collection in the City is the same process as for brush collection. After all decorations have been removed, trees should be placed at the street for collection. Please note that Public Service Department crews are currently concentrating on leaf collection and will pick up brush and Christmas trees only as time allows. The regular two week schedule for brush will not begin until mid to late January, depending on the area of the City. Thank you for your patience.

Christmas Tree-Cycling at Ijams

Recycle your Christmas Tree at Ijams December 26, 2013 to February 1, 2014 during normal business hours. When donated, your tree will either be left intact to provide shelter for critters or it will be chopped into mulch to maintain their trails. Just bring your tree to the back of the gravel parking area across Island home Ave from Meads Quarry and place it there, free of lights, ornaments, ribbons or tinsel. Call 577-4717 ext. 110 for more information.

County Tree-Cycling Program

Christmas Tree-Cycling
City residents can also take advantage of the County's Tree-Cycling program. After the New Year, residents can bring unwanted, live Christmas trees for free disposal. Knox County will not be offering mulch pick-up this year, but residents will be able to drop off trees throughout the entire month of January at no cost. Drop-off locations are the Dutchtown Convenience Center, Forks of the River Convenience Center, Halls Convenience Center, John Sevier Convenience Center, Powell Convenience Center and Tazewell Pike Convenience Center. Trees must be cleaned of all ornaments, lights, wire, string and other decor before bringing them to be tree-cycled.
