Two drop-off locations will be available for residents who want to recycle their Christmas trees after the holidays. The program is offered by the City of Oak Ridge.
Signs will be posted in both locations. The drop-offs are:
- Big Turtle Park, 2525 Oak Ridge Turnpike (parking lot)
- Solway Park, 205 Edgemoor Road (parking lot near the boat launch)
Trees will be accepted any time through January 29, 2017. On Saturday, January 14, and Saturday, January 21, Oak Ridge Recreation and Parks Department employees will be available to assist with unloading trees at the Big Turtle Park drop-off location from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., a press release said.
“Please be sure to remove all tinsel and other decorations from the Christmas trees before dropping them off for recycling,” the press release said. “Wreaths and garland will also be accepted, but no brush.”
For more information, contact the Recreation and Parks Department by phone at (865) 425-3450 or visit its departmental website at orrecparks.oakridgetn.gov.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
