AMITE—Tangipahoa Parish President Robby Miller said the Tangipahoa Parish Landfill will continue to operate through the COVID-19 response effort.
“We’ve had many calls and requests for updates on the landfill, and I want to reassure the public that our landfill is operational and serving the public,” Miller said.
Located at 57510 Hano Road west of Independence, the Tangipahoa Parish Landfill provides an environmentally safe place for residents to dispose of household garbage. Hours of operation are from 6:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. Monday through Friday and Saturdays from 7 a.m. until noon.
On Thursday, Miller announced temporary changes in the parish’s recycling and community service litter abatement program amid concerns over the COVID-19 situation.
Miller said that the parish’s recycling program will be closed temporarily as part of the COVID-19 procedures.
In addition, the Community Service Litter Abatement Program has been temporarily suspended as part of the parish’s COVID-19 response.
Miller said the parish will reinstate these programs as soon as possible.
