Republic Services suspending curbside recycling service in WBR Parish


PORT ALLEN, La. (BRPROUD) – Residents in West Baton Rouge Parish are going to have to hold onto their recycling a little bit longer.

Curbside recycling pickup is suspended at least until power has been restored to the Material Recovery Facility.

The West Baton Rouge Council is providing details about this decision below:

Due to the Material Recovery Facility (MRF) being without power and without the ability to process materials, Republic has suspended its curbside recycling service, effective immediately.

Once the MRF’s power has been restored and is operating as normal, we will notify you of resuming recycling services. WBR Parish and Republic Services thanks you for your understanding.

Regular garbage services are operating as normal as well as continuing the debris pickup process.
