Put your Christmas tree to use after the holidays

Posted: Updated:
JOHNSON CITY, TN -

The City of Johnson City, the Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency, and Keep Johnson City Beautiful are now collecting Christmas trees as part of the annual Treecycle program. TWRA will place the trees in area lakes to create fish habitats, enhancing not only the overall aquatic habitat of our lakes but also fishing opportunities for local anglers.

Live Christmas trees (cleared of any decorations) will be accepted for drop-off through Saturday, Jan. 18 at the Winged Deer Park Boat Ramp parking lot on Carroll Creek Road. Trees should be placed at the northwest side of the parking lot below the recycling drop-off station.

Johnson City residents with regular garbage/recycling collection may place their trees at the curb for pickup through Saturday, Jan. 18. These customers are advised to keep Christmas trees separate from brush to ensure the trees will be designated for the Treecycle program.

For more information, please call Keep Johnson City Beautiful Coordinator Eva Hunter at 979-6318.
