St. Tammany offers Christmas trees recycling

Updated:

FOX 8 News received this press release from St. Tammany Parish Government Wednesday afternoon:

St. Tammany Parish will again accept Christmas trees for recycling. On the Western side of the Parish, residents can drop off their trees at the St. Tammany Parish Fairgrounds in Covington.  The Parish would like citizens to use the entrance by Lyon Elementary. On the Eastern side of the Parish, the old Levee Board building in Slidell located at 61134 Military Road is the designated drop off location. Only bare, green trees will be used; no flocked trees, trees with ornaments, or trees with lights will be recycled.

Trees that are placed out on the curb for trash collection may not be recycled. Contact your trash collection company to find out if they participate in the parish-wide tree recycling program. 

The deadline for dropping off trees is January 31, 2013.  Trees may be dropped off between the hours of 7:30am – 3:30pm Monday through Friday.
