City-Parish to Hold Spring 2023 Household Hazardous Materials Collection Day on March 18

Baton Rouge, La. — March 10, 2023 — Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome announced today that East Baton Rouge Parish residents can drop off their household hazardous materials for the City-Parish’s Spring 2023 Household Hazardous Materials Collection Day on Saturday, March 18, from 9 a.m.–1 p.m.

The semi-annual collection day will be located at LSU’s Touchdown Village Parking Lot, located on South Quad Drive, across from Engineering Lane. Residents should remain in their vehicles while workers collect their materials. 

“Our semi-annual Household Hazardous Materials Collection Day provides our residents the opportunity to safely and properly dispose of waste that poses a threat to our community’s health, safety, and environment,” said Mayor Broome. “I encourage our residents to learn about household hazardous materials, how to identify them in their homes, and how to properly dispose of them. Every resident of East Baton Rouge Parish plays a crucial role in protecting our environment.”

Only East Baton Rouge Parish residents presenting valid identification are eligible to participate. Commercial waste will not be accepted. 

For more information, including a complete list of items accepted at the event, visit or contact the City-Parish Department of Environmental Services at (225) 389-4865.
