KNOXVILLE (WATE) - As the holiday season comes to a close, many are wondering what to do with their Christmas trees.

Residents within the City of Knoxville will be able to leave their trees by the side of the road to be picked up with other brush later in January.

For Knox County residents, they can also drop of trees at one of the following locations through the end of January:

  • 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
  • Tazewell Pike - 7201 Tazewell Pike

"It's important for us to offer this program because we want to keep green and organic waste out of the landfills and also this cuts down on open burning in Knox County," said Knox County Recycling Coordinator Zach Johnson.

Trees can also be dropped off at Ijams Nature Center where they will be used as mulch or natural environments for animals.
