If youre one of the many New Orleans residents to have signed up for SDT Waste & Debris Services recycling program online (Uptown & Carrollton hoods have more than 500 and 800 requests, respectively), expect a contract in your mailbox very soon.
SDT is serious about getting things started and anticipates a Mardi Gras kickoff, according to SDTs Julie Tufaro.
The program will provide a 35-gallon container per household and will collect mixed paper, plastics and cardboard twice a month with regular garbage pickup (Wednesday or Saturday). Still no glass collection, but thats not just a Louisiana problem.
Or hey, while youre at it, how bout a beer coozie?
