Make Your Next Event Greener with Our Recycling Trailer 

Keep Knoxville Beautiful's recycling trailer contains 30 lightweight ClearStream bins and recycling bags. We recommend placing one recycling bin next to every trash can. Borrowing the recycling trailer is free-of-charge. Here is how it works:

  1. Fill out the online form below. We will check our calendar and let you know if the trailer is available.

  2. Once confirmed, complete and return the following items:

  3. The trailer is 6x10 and a truck with a standard 2 inch ball hitch will be sufficient to haul it. Arrange a time to pick up the trailer and keys at our office at the Knoxville Botanical Gardens and Arboretum, 2743 Wimpole Avenue. (If you are facing the white, shingled visitor center, drive down the gravel driveway on the right.) If you need help hauling it, just ask! We are happy to help if we can.

  4. Make sure you and/or your vendors provide recyclable materials, especially for food.

  5. On the day of your event, place one bin next to each trash can. Recyclables are single-stream and do not need to be sorted--but due to recent changes in recycling in our community, we cannot accept glass.

  6. Return the trailer, the recyclables, and the keys to us on the next business day. (If you decide to recycle the materials yourself, be sure to count the number of bags and report it to us.)

  7. Feel great knowing you kept many pounds of valuable resources from going into our landfill.
