BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Many businesses are closing their doors on Thanksgiving and giving their workers a day off.

In that vein, Republic Services is getting the day off in the City-Parish too.

There will be no curbside garbage and recycling collection on Thanksgiving.

The mayor’s office released this statement about the schedule change:

Residential garbage (both in cart and out of cart woody waste/bulky items) and recycling will not be picked up on Thursday, November 26th in observance of the Thanksgiving Day holiday. Any garbage, recyclables or trash not collected on Thanksgiving Day will be collected on the next regularly scheduled collection day. City-Parish curbside garbage and recycling services will resume on Friday, November 27th.

In addition, the North Landfill will be closed on Thanksgiving Day and will re-open on Friday, November 27th. The Republic Services recycling drop-off center, located at 7923 Tom Drive, operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and will remain open during the holidays.

Any residents who need to report a missed garbage or recycling service, request a recycling cart, or report other garbage or recycling related issues should contact the City-Parish by dialing 3-1-1 or 225-389-3090, going online to, or downloading the free Red Stick 311 app on Apple or Android devices.
