St. Landry Parish Solid Waste - Landfill Tours
417 Solid Waste Rd.
Washington LA 70589
This nationally recognized facility has proven to be an unexpected must-see. While touring the landfill you will witness firsthand how nature and proper waste management can co-exist. Duck boxes, alligators, a wildlife habitat, bird sancturary, and peaceful ponds are some of the many sites. SLP Solid Waste is also the first landfill in the country to convert methane gases created as a by-product into a renewable source, CNG. The CNG is used to fuel garbage collection vehicles.
