Sanitation services are provided to City of Natchitoches Utility customers through Progressive Waste Solutions. Household waste is collected once a week in green carts provided by the City of Natchitoches. In addition, limbs and recycling are collected on that same day. To find out your household waste collection day, please view the map found on this page.

The City of Natchitoches offers it garbage customers “back door service,” meaning that garbage carts are rolled to the street by Ward’s Waste Services employees. Once your cart has been emptied, a Progressive Waste Solutions employee will place your cart back to its original location.

Garbage rates are $18.95 per month for residential customers and $46.20 a month for commercial customers. Garbage rates are included on customers’ monthly utility bills from the City of Natchitoches. To sign up for garbage service, please call the City of Natchitoches Utility Service Center at (318) 357-3843.

Questions or concerns about garbage collection may be directed to Progressive Waste Solutions at (318) 356-0000 or
