Anyone interested in recycling their Christmas tree can drop it in the designated area at the Hobby Lobby parking lot beside Foothills Mall until Jan. 9.
Folks who drop off their trees from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. will receive free tree seedlings while supplies last.
“Don’t forget to remove all lights, nails, wires and decorations from your tree,” Keep Blount Beautiful coordinator Charlene DeSha said. “Help save space in the landfill and provide fish and wildlife sanctuaries along with mulch for our local parks.”
The initiative is sponsored by Blount County Parks and Rec, Wolf Tree Experts, TN Wildlife Resources Agency, The Daily Times and Keep Blount Beautiful. For more information contact DeSha at 865-681-4809.
