Services affected after multiple garbage truck drivers contract COVID-19 in WBR


Republic Services

PORT ALLEN, La. (BRPROUD) – If you live in Erwinville, Port Allen, Addis or Brusly, your trash and recycling might still be on the side of the road.

This is because of a driver shortage at Republic Services.

West Baton Rouge Parish posted this message on Facebook:


Per Republic Services:

“…have 7 drivers out on COVID. We have parts of Erwinville, Port Allen, Addis, and Brusly incomplete off today’s three routes. We will tackle first thing in the morning.”
We ask that citizens remain patient as Republic works to service all areas of the Parish with a short staff.

Thank you.

If you have any questions about your trash pickup in WBR, visit Republic Services.
