New proposal could lead to increased price for garbage pickup in EBR


EAST BATON ROUGE PARISH, La. (WAFB) – A new proposal could mean changes to the garbage pickup process in East Baton Rouge Parish.


The proposal could impact the price people pay and the number of times that garbage is collected each week.

Homeowners in East Baton Rouge Parish pay $23 a month for Republic Services to have their trash picked up twice a week. In the new proposal, Republic Services wants to charge $28.50 to pick up people’s garbage once a week. For the option of having trash picked up twice a week, the public would pay $38 every month.


The East Baton Rouge Mayor-President’s Office requested offers from different trash services but said only Republic Services had a proposal matching the EBR’s demands.
