We urge all residents to participate in our local recycling program in order to help the environment and ensure our community remains clean!
The receptacles are located at 115 Jack Fendley Drive, just past Woodland Park and behind Blount County 911. Please pull through the gate and the large green recycling container will be located to your left. The service is available every Thursday from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and the area is under camera surveillance. Anyone caught dumping garbage or violating the terms of recycling will be ticketed and banned from the service.
