NEW ORLEANS —
The city of New Orleans has provided a temporary option for garbage disposal while it works to catch up on trash pickups following Hurricane Ida.
Starting Wednesday at 11 a.m. the city of New Orleans Department of Sanitation will allow residents to dispose of bagged household garbage at the Elysian Fields Transfer Station free of charge temporarily while they work to increase sanitation contractor capacity.
Going forward, the Transfer Station will open at 8 a.m. daily.
Given the demand, residents are advised that there could be long lines and wait times to utilize the transfer station.
The Sanitation Department is coordinating closely with the New Orleans Police Department Traffic Division to monitor traffic flow on Elysian Fields Avenue, according to the city.
