Jefferson Parish residents will have recycling options this weekend for the first time in 2024.

Why it matters: Curbside recycling ended in December 2023 when the contract expired and council members did not sign a new one.

The big picture: Two drop-off sites open Saturday where residents can bring their recyclables.

  • The sites are at 400 David Drive in Metairie and 6440 Lapalco Boulevard in Marrero.

What's next: Curbside recycling may return in Jefferson Parish, but leaders say they are ironing out details, such as whether residents will have to opt-in individually.
