On Household Hazardous Waste Day, the Department of Sanitation will collect a number of every day household items which are no longer in use by residents and should not be thrown away with regular garbage or in curbside recycling containers. Some of the items accepted include batteries, televisions, paint, light bulbs, oil, mercury devices, aerosols, pesticides and household cleaners. A full list of accepted items listed above.
This is a safe way of disposing with materials that could be hazardous to residents, and we encourage people to drop them off to us this Saturday
Additionally, the City’s free curbside recycling services began on May 2, 2011. Residents who are not yet participating in the recycling program but who would like to register may sign up at http://recycle.nola.gov. Carts will be provided by the City only on request. Residents may also fill out the Recycling Service Notice manually and mail it or drop it off to City Hall, 1300 Perdido Street, Room 1W03, New Orleans, LA 70112 or fax it to (504) 658-3801.
Residents may also use their blue or black recycling bins that were used before Hurricane Katrina. The plastic bins must be marked for recyclables and residents must register for services.
Collection maps and schedules for Richards and Metro Disposal service areas may be found on the Citys website by clicking here.
