Still have your Christmas tree up after the holidays? Unnatural, unflocked trees can be picked up and recycled in Orleans Parish! The recycling program returns this year in an effort to resort and protect the Louisiana coastline.

“Orleans Parish residents who receive solid waste collection services by the Cityโ€™s contractors Richard’s Disposal and Metro Service Group, in service areas 1 and 2, are encouraged to recycle their Christmas trees. Residents are asked to place their trees curbside before 5 a.m. on their regularly scheduled collection day between Jan. 10-15, 2022.

Properties in the French Quarter or DDD, serviced by Empire Services, should place their trees curbside before 4 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 13, 2022.

Trees MUST be unflocked and free of all tree stands and trimmings including decorations, ornaments, tinsel, and lights.
