The St Landry Parish contractor is Waste Connections (337-942-4031). There is no charge to St. Landry Parish residents for collection service.  The collection cost is paid for by funds generated from an 8/10 (eight tenths) of one percent sales tax. 

Collection crews start at 4:00 a.m. (Monday-Saturday), with collection twice a week in municipalities and once a week in parish.  Presently they collect an unlimited amount of residential waste at the curbside or roadside.  Businesses with small amounts of waste can be considered a service unit for residential collection but are only allowed up to 5 - 32 gal. containers per pick up.

All  items must be containerized not to exceed 32 gals. or 75 pounds. Yard waste should be secured no longer than 6 feet and not over 75 lbs. Bulky waste should be put with regular waste for collection.  White goods must be placed at curbside.  A special collection truck will collect these items on a predetermined schedule.


Christmas Day, New Year's Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day

For customers who have once a week pickup, if your regular pickup day falls on a holiday, your solid waste will be picked up on an alternate day during that week. The alternate collection day will be published in the local newspaper.

For customers who have twice a week pickup, if one of your regular pickup days falls on a holiday, your solid waste will be picked up on your next regular collection day.
