Damaged Recycling Cart - Replace Lid or Wheels

If your recycling cart is damaged, please contact 3-1-1 for a cart repair or replacement. Please be prepared to provide all relevant information regarding how and when the cart was damaged, including pictures of the damage if possible.

If the City-Parish determines you have negligently damaged your recycling cart in any way, you will be responsible for buying another cart at a cost of $40.00, which will be added to your monthly sewer and water bill. If you believe the City-Parish is responsible for damage to your recycling cart, please explain this when you call the Recycling Office, and a representative will help you determine how to move forward with your report.

If you believe the recycling contractor damaged other personal property, please see the “Property Damaged by Recycling Truck” knowledge base article.
