      CITY OF NEW ORLEANS CHRISTMAS TREE RECYCLING PROGRAM
       
      Partner with the City of New Orleans to help restore Orleans Parish wetlands!
       
      Orleans Parish residents are invited to participate in this year's Christmas Tree Recycling Program. The initiative collects used Christmas trees after the holiday season to be deposited in Bayou Savage as part of an ongoing wetland restoration project.
       
      Residents of Orleans Parish who would like to participate are asked to place their trees curbside on the evening of January 6th for collection on January 7th, 8th and 9th  2010.  
       
      Trees should be stripped of all tinsel, garland, lights, ornamentation, plastic bags and tree stands.  Flocked or painted trees cannot be used for the project.  Garbage trucks will only make one pass through each neighborhood.


      The Christmas Tree Recycling Program is a partnership between the City of New Orleans Office of Environmental Affairs, Louisiana National Guard, Bayou Land RC&D and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
