Happy New Year, residents of Harahan!


The City of Harahan is participating in the Jefferson Parish Christmas Tree Recycling Project.  Trees will be picked up on January 12, 13 and 14, 2017.

Residents are advised to place trees curbside on the evening of Wednesday, January 11th.  Garbage trucks will make one pass through each neighborhood to collect trees on January 12, 13, and 14, 2017.

This year’s project involves two (2) phases.  Some of the trees will be placed in the marsh, refurbishing previously constructed shoreline fences in Goose Bayou near Lafitte to help protect and restore Jefferson’s coastal wetlands; and others will be brought to Wood Materials, LLC to be chipped and used for composting.

Only clean, unpainted and non-flocked trees are acceptable for re-use.  Prior to placing trees curbside, residents must remove all lights, tinsel, garland, ornaments, tree stands, and plastic bags from their Christmas trees.  Artificial, flocked or painted trees are not eligible for the program.

For additional information, please contact Jason Smith, Coastal Programs Supervisor Jefferson Parish Department of Environmental Affairs at (504) 491-3612.
