Why is it important to correct my recycling cart?
Contamination in individual recycling carts can ruin an entire truckload of recyclable materials. Contaminated
loads require extra steps in the material recovery process, are charged more for drop-off at the recovery
facility, contain materials that can break sorting machines, and can also harm workers at these
facilities. Click here to learn more.
LCG’s recycling program is an important part of our community’s effort to reduce the amount of
waste we send to the landfill. Curbside recycling is part of the overall waste services package residents
pay. Charges cannot be removed from billing. We encourage all citizens to recycle properly. However, if
you choose to not recycle and need another garbage cart for your
excess trash, call Republic Services at 337-806-2040 to order a second garbage cart for a one-time fee.
