After years of waiting, residents of Terrebonne Parish can finally recycle their trash.
Last Friday's Houma Courier featured an article by Naomi King letting local residents know where the community recycling bins can be found, and what we can toss into them.
According to Ms. King's article:
"The [recycling] bins are at these locations:
>Bayou Cane Fire Department, 6166 W. Main St. (Map)
>East Houma Fire Station, 2101 E. Tunnel Blvd. (Map)
"To recycle, do not separate or bag your materials. Just throw them in the windows on each side of the containers. Only plastics with the numbers 1-7 can be recycled. You can find that number inside the recycling triangle symbol on any plastic. Do not put aerosol cans, wood, plastic bags, batteries or electronics into the green bins."
It's about time, huh?
