Got a half-dead christmas tree throwing pine needles all over the place? Me too. Luckily the Landrieu administration is continuing the christmas tree recycling program for wetlands restoration. It’s a little unclear exactly when pick up is for different neighborhoods, but it sounds like if you put your tree out on the night of the 5th it will be picked up sometime in the following few days. In February, the Louisiana National Guard will collect the trees and place them along the coast aided by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. If you’d like to volunteer call Dani Levine in the Office of Coastal & Environmental Affairs at 658-4071.
If you live in Jefferson Parish leave your tree curbside on the evening of January 6th. It will be picked up between the 7th and 9th by volunteers who will use them to reenforce the shoreline of Goose Bayou. Wanna volunteer? Sign up at www.jeffparish.net .
