Roadside Litter Program

In 1992 an intergovernmental agreement was forged between the Parish of Caddo (Public Works Department) and the Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office. This agreement established a Roadside Litter Program, which allows the sheriff to use prison inmates to remove litter from roadsides throughout the parish.

From 1996-2011 the Roadside Litter Program collected several tons of litter along parish roads. Parish future plans include adding another compactor site and expanding the existing recycling program.

Area Recycling

All sites have containers for recycling clean newspaper, cardboard, aluminum, plastic and steel cans. Compactor sites do not accept any glass recyclables.
