St. Charles Parish officials kicked off monthly drive-through recycling drop-offs this month. The events take place the first Saturday of each month (except for April 10, July 10 and Sept. 11) from 9 a.m. to noon at St. Charles Plaza on Hwy. 90 in Luling and the Allen Arterbury Building on River Road in New Sarpy. There is no cost to participate in the drop offs, which are held in conjunction with the Recycling Foundation of Baton Rouge.
Accepted materials include plastic containers (Nos. 1-7), paper, cardboard, paperboard, shredded paper (in bags), newspapers, magazines, phone books and metal containers such as aluminum and steel. Glass is not accepted. Volunteers will help with unloading. — Alex Woodward
