Automated Waste Collection

Below you’ll find helpful information and a few suggestions concerning the automated trash collection service here in Jennings.

————–

You should place your Republic Services trash cart near the street and 3 feet away from ANYTHING, including other carts or cans.  Vehicles should not be parked on the street on collection day.  In addition, your cart has arrows on the lid; these arrows MUST point to the street.

Correct placement of trash cart.

All garbage needs to be INSIDE the trash cart with the lid completely closed.  Items placed on top or outside of your cart may cause all of your garbage to remain at the curb.  If you consistantly have more garbage than will fit in one 96-gallon cart, it is recommended that you request a second cart.  These can be obtained by calling the Water Revenue Office at 337-821-5502.  (a small monthly fee on your water bill will apply for each additional cart)

If you move to a different address, you must leave your trash cart at the old address, as the carts are assigned to the address and not the customer.

If your trash cart is stolen or is missing, you will need to get a police report from the Jennings Police Dept. and turn a copy in to City Hall so that we can have a new cart issued to you.
