City of Knoxville, Knox Co. offer options for Christmas tree disposal


KNOXVILLE (WATE) - The City of Knoxville and Knox County are offering several options for residents who need a way to get rid of their Christmas trees.

The City of Knoxville will be collecting trees as part of their brush collection service.

Residents are asked to remove all decorations and place the tree by the side of the road.

According to the city's website, workers are still collecting leaves and brush and will begin collecting trees as time allows. The regular two-week schedule for brush will not begin until mid-to-late January, depending on the neighborhood.

Residents can also take trees to Ijams Nature Center in South Knoxville, where they will be used as animal habitats or chipped into mulch for trails.

To donate your tree to Ijams, remove all items from the tree and drop it off at the Miller Education Building at the nature center. Collection will begin Dec. 28 and last through March 2.

For more information on Ijams' tree collection, call 577-4717 ext. 110

  • Dutchtown - 10618 Dutchtown Road
  • Forks of the River - 3106 Water Plant Road
  • Halls - 3608 Neal Drive
  • John Sevier - 1810 Gov. John Sevier Highway
  • Powell - 7311 Morton View Lane
