Sanitation & Recycling
Trash/garbage pickup is provided by Bayou State Containers. This service is funded through a sales tax collected by the St. Landry Parish Government. Trash/garbage pickup within the corporate limits of the Town of Port Barre is on Thursdays. Trash/garbage must be placed at your pick-up location by scheduled pick-up day. The city of Town of Port Barre contracts with an outside waste management company for solid waste collection and recycling. Everyone within the city limits is required to have garbage collection and all residential customers within the city limits are required to have recycling collection.
Most trash and debris, when properly bundled and/or contained properly, can be disposed of at curbside with your regular garbage service days. If assistance is needed or you have questions for the city, please do not hesitate to contact us.
For questions specific to trash or recycling pick up, please call the waste management company directly 337-290-1456.
