GONZALES – Ascension Parish President Tommy Martinez announced Monday the parish’s Recycle Road Show for the month of July has been rescheduled for Saturday, June 28, 2014 at the Wal-Mart store in Prairieville. A recycling vehicle will be stationed in the parking lot from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m.

“The July date falls on the week of the July 4 holiday week,” said Don Hysell, parish environmental manager. “We want to make sure parish residents won’t miss out on dropping off their recyclable materials because of being out of town on vacation.”

The types of material being accepted at the Recycling Road Show include:

·        Newspapers and magazines, including catalogs, phone books and paperback books, mail, colored paper and envelopes. Photos and carbon paper are not accepted.

·        Milk and juice cartons, but no wax-coated frozen food packaging or take-out food containers.

·        Cardboard, including detergent and cereal boxes, 12-pack drink cartons and flattened boxes.

·        Aluminum, tin or bimetal cans and metal lids, but no aerosol cans or wire hangers.

·        No. 1 through No. 7 plastic containers, but no bags, hangers, caps, lids, six-pack rings or chemical containers.
