St. John starting Christmas tree pickup on Monday

LAPLACE — Beginning Monday, for two weeks, the St. John Parish Public Works Department will collect Christmas trees throughout the parish.

Residents should place their trees curbside for pick-up instead of discarding them in the landfill.

All trees should be completely stripped of decorations. Flocked or artificial trees will not be picked up.

Residents are encouraged to call the Public Works Department at 985-652-4815 to request pick-up.
