The city of Knox has reported that they will begin picking up disposed Christmas trees on their regular brush pick-up day, regularly scheduled for every Thursday beginning Jan. 3, 2013.
Anyone who wishes to dispose of their natural Christmas tree may do so by placing the tree near the curb where they would normally put any brush during the summer months. Officials emphasized that all ornaments and tinsel must be removed before the tree will be taken for disposal.
In addition, residents can also dispose of their tree in the city’s compost drop-off pile located behind City Hall. The garbage contractors will not pick up disposed natural Christmas trees – these must be picked up by the brush pickup crews or dropped off at the compost drop-off pile.
