The Acadia Parish Landfill in Egan serves the entire parish with dignity and respect.  We work well within the mandates of the laws and regulations established by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ).  In 2002, the landfill earned its seventh consecutive DEQ Compliance Award.

Acadia Parish is a good community in which to live.  We have a good solid waste and garbage collection program.  The landfill in Egan is one of the best from an environmental view.

We urge everyone to participate in our recycling efforts each and every year.  We can accomplish our waste reduction goals by continual investments in research and development.  Independently we can all take part.
