Knoxville launches new parks and greenways recycling program

Posted:

KNOXVILLE (WATE) - The City of Knoxville announced Wednesday a new recycling program for the city's parks and greenways, as well as a revamped park waste management system.

Mayor Madeline Rogero says the city has bought 430 new waste receptacles, half of which will be used for recycling, while the other half will replace the city's decades-old green trash

Total cost for the initiative was approximately $27,000, funded as a City capital project.

The city's Public Service Department is currently in the process of installing the new cans with mechanisms to secure them in the City's 60 parks. Installation is expected to be complete by May.
