Athens workers offer curbside collection for Christmas trees

Athens workers offer curbside collection for Christmas trees

Sean Rice; Labor Foreman, Public Works "One thing that we do ask is make sure your lights are off".

That's why the Manchac resident was first in line to drop off recycled Christmas trees to the Southeastern Louisiana University Turtle Cove Environmental Research Station on day one of its 23rd annual collection program.

Christmas trees in St. Charles Parish will be picked up curbside between January 9-10.

If you are in a private Reston cluster, check with your cluster board or trash service provider to find out specifics for your neighborhood. But the used - real - Christmas tree still can serve a objective, according to Ellen Keefe, executive director of the Westmoreland Cleanways and Recycling program.

Fire officials have warned that keeping a natural tree up for too long could put an entire home at risk.

The trees will be taken to a composting facility to be composted along with all of the other garden waste from the recycling centres. Wilkes-Barre residents can also take trees to the DPW garage at 3 Conyngham Ave. on weekdays from 7 a.m. through 3:30 p.m. People who drop off their trees on that day can enjoy a cup of hot chocolate and visit with some of the 60-plus Alpine and other goats who live at Appleton Creamery.

Christmas trees are chipped along with regular brush from residents and the chips are given away free to residents and businesses, according to the release.

Christmas trees will be collected throughout unincorporated Jefferson Parish, Gretna, Harahan, Kenner, Lafitte and Westwego on January 11, 12 and 13.

Or you can use your tree as a fish feeder. Elsewhere, unused Christmas trees have been utilised by the Environment Agency to stabilise river banks in Cheshire and Cumbria, as well as providing new habitats for wildlife.

And lastly, if you still want to hold on to your tree why not plant it in our own backyard?

However, if you wish to place your donation on the tree, as in previous years, this is still possible.
