Kenner Restarts Recycling Program

Dec 24, 2012

Kenner officials say two locations are now available for residents to drop off recyclable materials.

Kenner suspended its recycling program after Hurricane Katrina struck in 2005.

The city and contractor Ramelli Waste have set up collection locations on Vintage Drive and at the City Hall.

Acceptable recyclables include plastic containers with the recycling symbol for numbers 1-7, aluminum, tin and steel containers, and paper products such as magazines, phone books, newspapers and junk mail. Cardboard and other boxes must be folded and flattened; shredded paper must be contained in plastic bags.

The collection locations operate at all hours every day.
