New Orleans Hazardous Waste Disposal
Just in from the City of New Orleans:
This Saturday, June 11, the City will sponsor a Household Hazardous Waste Day from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at 2829 Elysian Fields Avenue.
On Household Hazardous Waste Day, the Department of Sanitation will collect a number of every day household items which are no longer in use by residents and should not be thrown away with regular garbage or in curbside recycling containers. Some of the items accepted include batteries, televisions, paint, light bulbs, oil, mercury devices, aerosols, pesticides and household cleaners.
This is a safe way of disposing with materials that could be hazardous to residents, and we encourage people to drop them off to us this Saturday.
For more information on Household Hazardous Waste Day, please email Sanitation@nola.gov or call the Department of Sanitation at (504) 658-3800. To register for recycling services, visit http://recycle.nola.gov or call the Department of Sanitation.
This is a great time to clear out that stuff hanging around in your garage that can’t be thrown in the normal trash.
