New Garbage Carts Being Delivered In N.O.

Two sanitation contractors in New Orleans, Richard’s Disposal and Metro Services, are in the process of replacing all 95-gallon trash carts for eligible residents and small businesses. 

The two firms are obligated to distribute the new carts under their new contracts with the city.  The collection of old carts and distribution of new carts is to be completed by April 30

Many trash carts have been in service for their estimated lifespan of 10 years and damaged carts can attract insects and rodents and contribute to windblown litter in neighborhoods.

To ensure timely replacement, residents are being told to place their old carts curbside at each scheduled collection day. If the old cart is not curbside to be picked up when the new cart is delivered, residents are advised to continue to use their old cart, place it on the curb at each pick-up day, and it will be picked up by the end of April.  

Residents who have had their old carts removed, should expect to receive their new cart no later than the next collection day. If residents have not received their carts in that time frame, they are asked to call 311 to report the issue.

95% of residents in Metro Services’ area have received their new carts except for a small section of New Orleans East.  Richard’s Disposal has started delivering carts in the following neighborhoods: Algiers, Esplanade, City Park, Audubon, Broadway, So. Claiborne and Toledano.
