New Year's resolutions recycled at 6 Knox sites

Ten days into 2013, many Knoxvillians are wondering what to do with the withered remains of their New Year's resolutions. Fortunately for weak-willed, environmentally-conscious East Tennesseans, the Knox County Solid Waste Department will continue the county's annual New Year's resolution recycling program at six locations. The service will be offered until the end of the month. "We offer this program because some of these are perfectly good resolutions," said recycling coordinator Catherine Springer. "Someone is just going to come along next year and want to lose weight or to read 'War and Peace.' We should pass those resolutions on to people who can use them, rather than just adding more waste to our landfills." The following centers are participating in this year's program: Dutchtown Road, Forks of the River, Halls, John Sevier Highway, Powell and Tazewell Pike. Springer asks individuals who plan to drop off their resolutions to clean off all the shame, failure and frustration before arriving at the centers. The collected resolutions will be converted to new promises, which will be available in December.
