Trash Update

The city's sanitation department has started rolling out personalized, bar-coded trash collection carts complete with instructions on the "do's and dont's of waste disposal." All carts are expected to be delivered within 6 to 8 weeks.

Curbside recycling, discontinued in most of the New Orleans area after Hurricane Katrina, is unlikely to come back anytime soon because there is nowhere to send the used newspapers, bottles and cans.

City Business is calling for a needed increase in public trash cans.
