Live Christmas Trees can be dropped off for free at six different Knox County convenience centers throughout the month beginning Tuesday.
Knox County convenience center locations
People need to remove all decorations from the tree before dropping them off at centers. The trees will be converted into mulch.
There are recycling options available for people who don't live in the county. If you live within the city limits, you can place your tree beside the curb, and city crews will pick up the trees.
Ijams Nature Center is collecting live Christmas trees as well. They also will be converted into mulch or used as shelter for animals.
