Staff Report


Once again the Lawrence-Scioto Solid Waste Management District will partner with the U.S. Forestry Service to provide a place for county residents to dispose of Christmas trees after the holidays.

Used Christmas trees must be stripped of all decorations and brought to one of six designated areas:

• Lawrence County Fairgrounds

• South Point Village Hall

• Coal Grove Village Hall

• Hanging Rock Police Department

• U.S. Forestry at 6518 State Route 93, Pedro

• Vacant ODOT property at junction of U.S. 52 and State Route 141.

This event is for live trees only. The trees will be collected and transported to Lake Vesuvius where they will be deposited for fish habitat.

The tree collection will run from Dec. 26 to Jan. 3.
