This division is responsible for the City's recycling and drop-off centers, public awareness projects, environmental education programs, and also provides support for the Household Hazardous Waste Collection Center. This division is also responsible for developing and maintaining contracts for recyclable materials, consulting with local event planners about green events and providing options for use of recycling bins and containers for use at the events. Some of the events that are coordinated through this effort are America Recycles Day and Knoxville's Earth Day event.
