Blue bins no longer used for recycling, recycling center located on Mill Street


The waste management company will no longer pick up recycling bins at homes and blue recycling bins are now being treated as regular trash bins. This came into effect Jan. 1.

At the old cotton mill on Mill Street, also where the Cane River Brewing is located, there is a recycling center where five new large bins can be found.

The hours citizens can recycle are when the Natchitoches’ Public Works office¬†is open, from¬†7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on weekdays, and also when the Brewery is open, Thursdays and Fridays from 4-11 p.m., Saturdays from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. and Sundays from noon – 8 p.m.
