Move it or Loose It - Metro Police Neighborhood Message

Donelson Neighborhood News

I’m very happy to announce that starting Friday January 9th, the Nashville Financial Empowerment Center will open its first ever satellite counseling location in Donelson! They will have a financial coach located at the Donelson Goodwill Career Solutions Center at 2731 Lebanon Pike on Fridays from 9am to 3pm. To make an appointment, please call the FEC number at 615-780-3620. This is a FREE one-on-one service that provides professional financial counseling and methods to reduce debt and build assets. Since launching in March 2013, the FEC has helped Nashville neighbors reduce over $900,000 of debt and increase savings of over $200,000. Please pass this on to your family and friends that could benefit from their services.

Metro Public Works and Metro Parks & Recreation have once again teamed up to offer Christmas Tree Recycling. Leave your tree at Two Rivers Park through February 9th and Public Works will collect them for mulching at the Bordeaux Mulch Facility. All trees must be free of lights, ornaments, icicles, all tinsel and garland. No flocked and no artificial trees can be accepted. Public Works will take the trees to the Bordeaux Mulching Facility to be chipped and composted into mulch. Natural brown mulch, made from Christmas trees and yard brush, is sold at the facility for $9.50 a cubic yard. The Bordeaux Mulching Facility is open Monday through Saturday, 7am to 4pm. No mulch sales after 12 noon on Saturdays. Recycling Christmas Trees into mulch, rather than putting them in the trash, keeps them out of landfills and helps save Metro the cost of disposal fees. In 2013, over 14,400 trees were recycled through the Christmas Tree Drop-Off Program.

Metro Nashville Police Department recently sent out these simple but effective reminders and tips about keeping your property safe.
