How to Recycle

  • Completely empty your beverage container.

*Please note: unless you are using curbside, be expected to drop beverage containers into a bin individually, as this decreases contamination in collections.

"If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it" – Peter Drucker

According to the statistics, Louisiana is last in the nation on its recycling efforts at a current 9% recycling rate. Out of the 303 municipalities in the state, only 24 currently report their solid waste and recycling data.

Louisiana is in desperate need of standardizing the way in which solid waste and recycling data gets reported. This will provide key insights into tracking program performance and can be used to make more informed decisions.

Make a one-time or recurring donation to the Louisiana Recycling Coalition and help us in our efforts to implement data-driven recycling management across our state.
