City-Parish officials announced this morning that operating hours at the North Landfill, located at 16001 Samuels Road, will soon fully return to the landfillís pre-flood operating schedule. Effective Monday, October 17, the North Landfill will be open to the public Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., and closed on Sunday.

The landfillís return to normal operating hours follows an expanded schedule Mayor Holden put in place immediately following the August flooding event due to citizen need and demand. Moving forward, residents may drop off garbage at the landfill Monday through Saturday during the listed hours of operation, a service that is free to East Baton Rouge Parish residents with proof of residence such as a driverís license or utility bill.
