NEWSFLASH: MEMORIAL DAY HOLIDAY GARBAGE COLLECTION
City-Parish offices will be closed on Monday, May 29 in observance of the Memorial Day holiday.

ABOUT THE DIVISION
The Department of Environmental Services oversees the City-Parish solid waste program, which includes all garbage collection activities and management of the North Landfill, located at 16001 Samuels Road in Zachary.
Garbage collection is provided to residents by Republic Services, a private company that serves residents via contract with the City-Parish, while the day-to-day operations of the North Landfill are overseen by another private contractor, Waste Management.
City-Parish solid waste staff are responsible for managing both of these contractors and ensuring services are provided in a timely and satisfactory manner.
