The rules for recycling have changed a bit in Lincoln Parish.
For several months now, local residents have had the opportunity to drop off cardboard, paper items and select hazardous materials for recycling the second Saturday of each month at the Public Works Complex on Tennessee Avenue.
The times and dates are still the same, but the location has changed. From 8:30-11:30 a.m. each second Saturday, residents can drop off items at the Public Works Complex back gate, 2609 Farmerville Street, across from Emerald Trace Apartments.
While attendees gathered around to meet the Easter Bunny, dozens of children scoured the land in the hopes of finding the most Easter eggs.
The Choudrant Resortation and Beautification Society held their sixth annual Easter Festival on Saturday.
Celeste Butler said there were about 100 children participating in the Easter egg hunt.
“We’re a little short of the turnout last year,” she said. “But you can see they’re having fun and enjoying themselves.”
She added how gratifying it is to have the parents bring their children out to an event like this.
