Residents Should Separate Household Garbage and Storm-Generated Debris by Type of Waste at the Curb for Collection
JEFFERSON, LA – Curbside garbage collection of bagged household waste in Jefferson Parish-issued tipper carts will resume on Monday, September 6, 2021. Due to the impacts of Hurricane Ida, collection may not occur on the resident’s regularly scheduled collection day and service will be limited.

All food waste must be bagged in trash bags designed specifically for the storage and collection of garbage and placed curbside in the Parish-issued tipper cart for collection. Please do not place or mix bagged waste with storm debris.
Spoiled food must be removed from refrigerators and freezers prior to placing them at the curb for collection. Doors should be removed from refrigerators and freezers before placing at the curb for collection.
