Solid Waste Collection Service for Monday and Tuesday

Baton Rouge, La. – May 18, 2021 – The large amount of rainfall in East Baton Rouge Parish has created collection issues for Republic Services. The trucks were not able to complete services Monday evening due to safety concerns as severe weather began affecting the area.

The collection issues were compounded Tuesday with major street closures and neighborhood flooding. Bluebonnet Boulevard, Siegen Lane, Acadian Thruway and Stanford Avenue were closed due to flooding. This created a traffic gridlock on Perkins Road, Lee/College Drive, and Highland Road. The Gardere area, Magnolia Woods and Riverbend are some of the neighborhoods where street flooding prevented the trucks from servicing those areas. Trucks have also experienced up to 2½-hour traffic delays going to and from the landfill.

Only 60% to 75% of all the routes were completed Tuesday. Missed routes will be serviced on the next service day, which is Friday for garbage and next Tuesday for recycling and trash/bulky trash/woody debris collection.
