Where can I dispose of stumps near Crossville?

Recommended Posts

I've been busily digging up stumps and am beginning to accumulate quite a pile of them. Is there a place near Crossville where I can take a trailer-load for disposal? I know I can burn them, but no burn permits right now and I'd prefer to just take the quick route.

Thanks!

Y'all don't have ditches up that way?

Yeah, you know, I've had people dump trash on my property. I won't be doing that to anyone else.

Well, not without asking, some may want them.  Depending on what they look like, they can be used, once rinsed off, to create crappie habitats.  I read where many folks do this, some even make artificial ones.

My bet is, if you ask around, you can find somebody in East Tennessee that has a ditch that needs stopping up.  Of course you have to find a time to ask when all you hillbillies aren't out running around chasing your sisters ...😇

I can't speak to Crossville, but here in Roane county, the main dump has an area they collect 'green waste'. May check with DPW in your town?

I've burned up stumps good with a drill, and used motor oil and diesel. Bore as many big holes as you can in the stumps with the drill, liberally soak in oil/diesel mixture - pour into the holes and let it absorb. Repeat this daily for a week.

My Kids love it when Dad hands them a roman candle and asks them to come outside for a minute....

You can get a burn permit online, easy and painless: Burnsafetn.org

.. which now redirects you to here:

https://www.tn.gov/tnwildlandfire/prevention/safe-debris-burning

Use that site all winter long... prefer to burn when its wet outside, so don't usually spark up big piles in the summer.
