Orleans, Jefferson to Recycle Trees to Help Marsh
Even though Christmas is over, your tree can keep on giving.
WDSU-TV reports officials in Orleans and Jefferson parish are again picking up live trees for use in marsh restoration.
Folks are asked to remove all tinsel and ornaments from trees and then put them on the curb for pickup. Collection dates for both parishes are Jan. 10 through the 12th.
Flocked or painted trees are not eligible for the recycling program.
