Expansion of Annual Christmas Tree Recycling Program:

Starting this year, in the expansion of an on-going partnership with Turtle Cove, the City of Hammond, City of Ponchatoula, Lowes, and Middendorf's Restauarant, Southeastern's Sustainability Center will now provide a drop-off site on campus for Southeastern faculty, staff and students, as well as for the surrounding community, in effect providing a second drop-off site for the City of Hammond on the University end of town. Drop-off dates and times will begin on January 5th, 2015 and run through the month of January. Drop-off times will be 7:00am-4:00pm M-Th, and 8:00am-10:00am on Fridays. The address for the drop-off location on campus is:

Southeastern Louisiana University - Sustainability Center

2101 North Oak Street

Hammond, LA 70402

Please make sure your tree is not flocked and is free of any lights, ornaments, metal stands, or other un-natural materials. Trees will be picked up in February by City of Hammond trucks and brought to Turtle Cove's boatshed site in Manchac where the trees will be loaded onto the station's Pontoon Boat and deployed in the marsh during the early spring. University students and volunteers from the surrounding community will do the work. Over the past 20 years, Turtle Cove have been involved in the deployment of approximately 35,000 Christmas Trees into the Manchac marsh in various areas. Benefits of recycling Christmas Trees into the marsh include: erosion protection; marsh building and habitat creation for wildlife and fisheries; keeping trees out of landfills; and providing hands-on environmental education activities for our students and citizens in real-world wetland restoration activities.
