Christmas has come and gone and the new year has begun. However, with all the joys and tidings that the holiday season brings, so does it usher in tons of waste. From wrapping paper to boxes to Christmas trees, the dumpsters of Lincoln Parish are overflowing.
In an effort to keep Lincoln Parish clean, the City of Ruston has made disposing of some of the holiday garbage a little easier. Currently, a trailer is located in the parking lot across from the Ruston Civic Center, where residents may take their Christmas trees for disposal. While real trees, flocked and green ones alike, are accepted, manufactured trees are not.

Lincoln Parish School Board member George Mack Jr. has lived in some of the most interesting cities in the country.
“There are some great cities in this country,” Mack said. “But, in this state, I think we have a unique kind of dynamic here. New Orleans is a unique city in and of itself. That is probably the most interesting city, I think, I’ve lived in.”
New York City, which was the last big city he lived in before coming home to Ruston in 1995, also held great appeal, Mack said.
