  • If you need help figuring out what is and is not accepted refer to ACCEPTED ITEMS Quick Guide.

  • Once your cart has been corrected remove the Oops tag from your cart and wait until your next service day to put your recycling cart at the curb. Your corrected recycling cart will be serviced NEXT week.

  • If you are unable to remove the noted items, or have other concerns please call the LCG Recycling Office at 291-5637.

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.

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.
