Curbside Collection Of Glass To End In French Quarter, Downtown Development District

NEW ORLEANS – On Thursday, Jan. 12, curbside collection of glass will end in the French Quarter and the Downtown Development District (DDD). Beginning Saturday, Jan. 14, the City of New Orleans Department of Sanitation will add glass to its list of items accepted at the City’s Recycling Drop-Off Center (2829 Elysian Fields Ave.) on the second Saturday of each month from 8:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.  

         In September 2015, the City began collecting glass curbside each week in the French Quarter and the DDD. Due to low participation of eligible properties, the City can no longer justify the cost of the program to taxpayers, City reps said. The curbside glass collection program in the French Quarter and the DDD will be replaced by the addition of glass to the Recycling Drop-Off Center’s list of accepted items, so that all Orleans Parish residents can recycle glass. The last date for the curbside collection of glass in the French Quarter and the DDD is Jan. 12.  

         Residents can bring up to 20 lbs. of glass to be recycled in addition to the items already accepted at the Drop-Off Center.
