Ascension Parish residents can drop off their Christmas trees starting Friday at the Lamar-Dixon Expo Center in Gonzales.

Ascension Parish President Tommy Martinez said Christmas trees can be dropped off for recycling from Friday through Jan. 11 at the center, 9039 St. Landry Road.

After parish residents enter the center’s main gate on St. Landry Road, the drop-off area will be the unpaved parking area on the right side of the property, a news release said.

Parish officials said trees should be free of decorations and stands.
