Christmas Tree Recycling Locations

Monday, December 23, 2013

Hamilton County is once again accepting Christmas trees at any hour of the day at all five Hamilton County 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 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.
