Over 50,000 Pounds of Trash Cleared from Parish Roadways in the Month of March in St. Tammany



St. Tammany Parish Litter Abatement crews and Keep St. Tammany Beautiful, cleared 52,090 pounds of litter over 133 miles, in the month of March — the first full month of the implementation of two full-time crews utilizing St. Tammany Parish trusties. In addition, the St. Tammany Parish Litter Abatement team regularly deploys a third crew and a claw truck. The third crew is a Community Service Crew made up of litter violators who have earned a sentence of picking up the litter they have been a part of creating, as well as persons convicted of crimes through the 22nd Judicial District Court, such as DWI convicts, and misdemeanor offenders. 305 workers participated in the cleanup during the month of March.

“Our Litter Abatement team, part of the Department of Environmental Services (DES), Keep St. Tammany Beautiful and the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office, have taken the resources available to us at a low cost to taxpayers, and made an astounding impact, in such a short time, upon the entire community,” said Pat Brister, St. Tammany Parish President. “The residents of St. Tammany spoke up about the litter problem, and we listened and took further action. The results speak for themselves. As we continue to address this ongoing issue, we hope that our residents will join us in this fight to put an end to litter.”

“We are utilizing trusty labor in a positive way that directly impacts our quality of life here in our Parish. This, in turn, keeps the cost of this program at a minimum expense to our taxpayers,” said Randy Smith, St. Tammany Parish Sheriff.

The full-time Litter Cleanup crew, utilizing trusties from the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office and St. Tammany Parish Government Litter Abatement employees, has been operational since early February, 2017. The DES — Community Service Crew has been operational since May of 2001. 

Among the debris collected were 241 tires, 850 pounds of miscellaneous items, 2,327 filled orange disposal bags, and 127 filled large gray bags. The claw truck pulled in 13, 160 pounds of trash.
