Election Sign Recycling

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
December 14, 2022
ELECTION SIGN RECYCLING

Lafayette, LA – The Environmental Quality Division of Lafayette Consolidated Government (LCG) has partnered with Tre’ Bishop, high school freshman and son of Rep. Stuart Bishop, to recycle political signs. Bishop began this initiative in 2019 when he realized that corrugated plastic, the material used for yard signs, is not recycled in Louisiana. To keep them out of our landfills, Bishop and LCG have partnered with Republic Services and LA Scrap Metal to recycle the signs and metal stakes.

Collection boxes have been placed in three locations where residents can drop off election yard signs until the end of December. Recycling boxes are labeled “Rock Box.” Please remove metal stakes and place them on the side of the recycling box.

  • Behind Broussard City Hall, 310 E Main St.
  • Youngsville City Hall, 201 Iberia St.
  • Lafayette City Hall, 705 W University Ave.

Large election signs should be taken to Dean Domingues Compost Facility at 400 Dugas Rd where a temporary dumpster has been placed. Republic Services is generously comping the rental fee for the dumpster, and LCG is covering the costs to have the dumpster hauled away. The signs will be transported to KW Plastics in Alabama where they will be recycled.
