    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    1. What can I do with used motor oil and oil filters?
    Besides the Tullahoma Convenience Center (942 Maplewood Avenue), you also may go to Advanced Auto, Auto Zone, Lightning Lube, Tractor Supply Company or Wal-Mart (all located on North Jackson Street). Oil filters must be crushed prior to disposal; an oil filter crusher is needed to accomplish the crushing properly.

    2. How can yard waste be recycled?
    Yard waste should never be land-filled. One recommended method is "grass-cycling," which is cutting grass often and leaving clippings on the ground to return nutrients to the soil. Another method is composting, which converts grass clippings and loose leaves to form a rich soil that can later be used to enrich gardens and flowerbeds. The Public Works Department provides compostable bags ($1.85 for 10 bags) for the bagging of yard waste for collection by the city. Pickup must be scheduled by calling (931) 454-1768.

    3. Is there a way to get further education?
    For a speaker on waste reduction, recycling or other environmental topics, teacher in-service training, classroom programs, educational booths, crafts workshops, etc., please contact the Regional Administrator of Education, Recycling and Waste Reduction for the Interlocal Solid Waste Authority: (931) 962-9048 or (931) 703-2435.
