Recycle 2017 Christmas Trees at Knox County Convenience Centers

Thursday, December 14th, 2017

Posted by admin,

Ijams Nature Center has recycled old Christmas trees into mulch for the nature center’s more than 12 miles of trails for several years, but Ijams has a big supply of mulch and will NOT be recycling trees this year. There are a variety of locations where you can recycle your tree, so please keep it out of the landfill by taking it to one of these Knox County convenience centers:

  • Dutchtown Convenience Center – 10618 Dutchtown Road
  • Halls Convenience Center – 3608 Neal Drive
  • John Sevier Convenience Center – 1950 West John Sevier Highway
  • Karns Convenience Center – 6930 Karns Crossing Lane
  • Powell Convenience Center – 7311 Morton View Lane
  • Tazewell Pike Convenience Center – 7201 Tazewell Pike

Thank you!
