Different construction material waste in a garbage bin 1

Louisiana has one of the lowest recycling rates in the country, sitting at just 12.87%, meaning there is still a huge demand for the many landfills situated around the region. And although there are some organizations dedicated to reducing waste to dumps, it’s good to see that counties have planned ahead and still have many landfills with years, even decades, or life still left in them.

You’ll find these dumps, landfills, and transfer stations all across the state in areas such as New Orleans, Creole, Oakdale, Sorrento, Keithville, Lake Charles, Monroe, Sulphur, and many more. There are even new dumps opening despite receiving backlash from local residents sometimes.

General household waste, yard waste, electronics, car parts, construction materials, scrap metals, papers, cardboard, and glassware are some of the most commonly accepted items. Others such as batteries or chemicals that may be toxic or hazardous to the environment must be treated in a safe manner. So please call ahead to confirm if they can accept your trash.

Although Lousiana doesn’t have as many dumps as there are in Texas, you’re still likely to find one near you. And just like California, most of the dumps in the region are operated by the local counties themselves. Things are always changing though, and some of the municipal dumps are being taken over by private organisations – which may have an impact on the fees they charge.

Generally speaking, you will need to pay to dump your trash at any of the locations below. This varies depending on if you’re a resident of the local county, what kind of materials you’re dumping, and how much you’ve got. Check their website or give them a call to confirm.
