Keep Paris Beautiful Tree Giveaway and Electronics Recycling Day

Keep Paris Beautiful/Make Lamar County Shine is proud to announce its 9th Annual Tree Giveaway and Electronics Recycling Day will be held Saturday February 25th from 8 to noon at the Lamar County Courthouse Parking lot. The Texas Forestry Service has graciously donated 1000 bare root seedlings, all hardwoods that thrive in our local soils. The Tree Giveaway will start promptly at 8, with 4 trees allocated to each person in line until all the trees are gone. This year’s tree varieties are Sawtooth Oak and Bald Cypress. This is a popular event in the Paris community, so get there early!

In tandem with the Tree Giveaway, there will be an Electronics Recycling Station where folks can drop off a wide variety of old/broken/unused Electronics equipment. Accepted items include flat screen tvs and monitors, computers, keyboards, cables, dvd players, microwave ovens, appliances, power tools, and more. A more comprehensive list of accepted items follows at the end of this message.
