Jefferson Parish suspends curbside recycling pick-up in unincorporated parts of the parish. This includes the town of Jean Lafitte. The recycling program suspension starts Saturday, March 21. The suspension is due to the spread of COVID-19.

Residents are advised not to place their bins curbside on Friday evening, March 20, 2020 for collection on Saturday, March 21, 2020.

“We are sorry for the inconvenience, but we will do our best to restore these services when we can, said Katherine Costanza, Assistant Director of Jefferson Parish Environmental Affairs. “The curbside recycling program is important to Jefferson Parish and something we will continue once the spread of the virus has been contained.”
