Terrebonne And Lafourche Recycling Efforts Stunted By Lack Of Support
In spite of a nationwide increase in environmental consciousness, recycling efforts in Terrebonne and Lafourche parishes have not had widespread public support.
After receiving limited responses from residents, officials said potential plans to revive the curbside recycling programs in both parishes were scrapped.
Terrebonne Parish Utilities Director Tom Bourg tells The Courier there wasn't enough public interest to justify a curbside recycling program.
He says the use of recycling bins placed throughout Terrebonne Parish has decreased as well.
Lafourche Parish's curbside recycling pickups ended in 2005 following increases in the cost of the program. Lafourche Parish President Charlotte Randolph said resident interest has not increased much since then.
