Hamilton County Accepting Christmas Trees For Recycling

Thursday, December 27, 2012

County residents are invited to drop off their trees at any hour of the day at all five Hamilton County Household Recycling Centers through the month of January. Each Center has a designated space located outside the gate for Christmas trees. 

Participation is encouraged as trees dropped-off will be used by the Tennessee Department of Wildlife and Forestry Division and the Hamilton County Highway Department. 
 

The State strategically submerges the trees as “fish attractors.” The Highway Department chips the trees into mulch for walking trails, landscaping and landfill ground cover. Hamilton County residents are welcome to pick up mulch from the chip yard located at the Highway Department  on Standifer Gap Road at no charge.  

Household recyclables are accepted at the centers during normal center hours.

Roy Exum: Mr. Trump, Stand Down!

I’ve never been a big fan of Donald Trump. Of his worldy possessions, I believe the only things bigger than his $4 billion bank account are his arrogance and his ego but what he did Friday was shameful. Here we have two Americans in Africa on a mercy mission who have been stricken with the ebola virus and as emergency efforts are in progress to bring them home, Trump -- in his usual ...
