Each year, Live Oak offers a Christmas tree-cycle and drop off site across from the Live Oak Clubhouse at 7901 Shin Oak Dr. until Friday, January 26, 2018. The mountain of trees that are accumulated during the month of January will eventually be placed into the city’s wood chipper and repurposed into mulch, free to the public. Please remember to remove all tinsel, decorations and metal stands before you drop off your tree. For more information, contact Cathi Piotrowski at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you have old paint, pesticides, herbicides, batteries or fluorescent light bulbs; electronic waste such as computers, monitors and laptops, that need to be disposed of? Live Oak residents please call (1-800-449-7587).
When it rains, water runs over the ground and picks up oil, antifreeze, and other pollutants and carries them to our streams and lakes. Help us to prevent these types of contaminates from entering our water and sewer systems by keeping your vehicle in good working condition.
Water we save is water we don’t have to buy. So it’s important we do everything we can to decrease our water consumption. Plumbing fixture retrofits, water saver landscapes, and improved habits are all things that will help us make low water use a part of every person’s everyday life.
