Tips on keeping Eunice beautiful
With fall upon us, it is time to remember the proper way to dispose of yard waste, leaves and branches. The City of Eunice Street Department is allowed to pick up bagged leaves, bagged yard clippings and branches when they are placed at a road (not an alley). However, City Ordinances Chapter 9, Section 1 and 3, prohibits placing non-contained leaves and yard clippings at the street curb or on the utility right-of-way. Loose leaves/pine needles/yard waste clog the City’s drainage pipes and can cause flooding issues. These items must be bagged.
The City of Eunice does not have a landfill, therefore all trash/garbage/debris must be placed in the 96 gallon trash container provided to each home/business by Progressive Waste. If debris cannot fit into the container, then it is your responsibility to contact Progressive Waste at 337-942-1291 to schedule a pickup of that waste OR large items such as sofas, chairs, mattresses, refrigerators, etc. ... or any other items to be disposed of that will not fit into the provided trash container.
Saturday, Nov. 5, from 8:30 a.m. to noon, the Eunice substation of St. Landry Parish Recycling will have a Household Hazardous Waste Day (8-12 in Opelousas). At this time you can dispose of paints, batteries, motor oil, antifreeze, any household chemicals and pesticides, flammables, corrosives, medications, tires (limit of five/person), fluorescent tubes and bulbs, and electronic waste such as computers, monitors, printers, cell phones and batteries. This collection is for households only. Prohibited: infectious and medical wastes, biological and radioactive materials, compressed gas cylinders, ammunition, fire extinguishers and smoke detectors and explosives.
Please do your best to Keep Eunice Beautiful, and safe.
