Changes to Recycling and Waste Pickup

A message from Mayor Mark Johnson, on March 24th, 2020

Covington Recycling Suspended,

One Day per Week Waste Service


Due to both a decrease in manpower and as a precaution for drivers and hoppers (the men on the back of the trucks), this week (ending Friday, 3/27) will be the last for recycling until further notice.


Beginning next week waste will be picked up on WEDNESDAYS ONLY. Next week there will be one pickup day: April 1st. (No fooling)


When recycling returns, it will be picked up on Thursdays. All waste will continued to be taken on Wednesdays. That's a good thing.

 Coastal Environmental Services will be posting updates to their website and Facebook page as often as necessary. Customers can also reach them at 985-781-3171 or email at
