FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CONTACT:
Susan Hamilton, Recycling Director, (225) 389- 5194

BATON ROUGE -- The City-Parish Christmas tree recycling program will collect trees curbside for East Baton Rouge residents, except in Baker and Zachary. Several drop-off locations are available too.
Trees should be placed on the curb between Jan. 9 through Jan. 21. There will only be one pickup in each area, so leave your tree out at the curb during those two weeks.
“The trees will be collected in rear loaders or brush trucks,” said Susan Hamilton, the city’s Recycling Director. “The trees are then delivered to Natural Resources Recovery, the City-Parish woody-waste recycling contractor, where they are mulched for beneficial re-use.”
Christmas trees should be separated from other unbundled trash and woody waste. Residents should also remove tinsel, stands, lights, ornaments or plastic tree bags from the trees because those items can contaminate mulch and compost.
The following drop-off collection sites are open until Saturday, Jan. 28, 2017:
• Independence Park, parking lot off Lobdell between tennis courts and Liberty Lagoon
• Highland Road Park, 14024 Highland Road
• Memorial Stadium, grassy lot near the corner of Scenic and Foss
• Flannery Road Park, 801 S. Flannery Road
• LSU, Skip Bertman Drive in lot across from Vet School

Sponsors of the Christmas tree recycling program are the Environmental Services Division, East Baton Rouge Parish Recycling Office, Waste Connections, Republic Services, Natural Resources Recovery, BREC, and LSU.
