Knox County Engineering and Public Works has informed us that for storm brush to be picked up in LH the following needs to happen:
Anyone wanting this done MUST call the Knox County Engineering and Public Works Dept at #865-215-5800 by August, 30 to include their pickup on the list.
Any brush needs to be within 6 feet side of the road and any brush or logs can’t be over 6 feet in length.
They will only pick up brush/logs. If any trash or construction debris is included, it will not be picked up.
Brush/logs should not be near a fire hydrant or utility poles or lines.
There is not a timeline when this will be collected; but, hopefully by the end of September or a month after 8/30.
It doesn’t sound like Knox County or their contractor is going to ‘street to street’ picking up brush/logs from the storm damage. If you are not on their list, your brush/logs will probably not be collected.
Note: LHHA can’t guarantee that brush/logs will be picked up by the county, but this is what we have been told.
