Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.

Thursday, March 22, 2018

Bayou Vermilion District (BVD) received the Keep Louisiana Beautiful Grant to implement the BVD Recycle Bin Loan Program in 2015. At that time, there were only three community events/festivals utilizing these bins. Since BVD began its work, participation has increased tremendously. Currently, there are 19 community events deploying recycle bins and corresponding trash receptacles. In 2017, there were over 240 cubic yards of recyclable material recovered from event waste, thus diverting 37 percent of reusable items from the landfill.

The greatest success of the program has been the environmental education of festival participants. According to the Law of Conservation of Energy, the total energy of an isolated system, i.e. the Earth, cannot be created or destroyed, only transformed from one form to another. The intent of the BVD Recycle Bin Loan Program is to change public perception about waste and educate on the valuable natural resource potential discarded each year.

One of the most surprising results of this program is how well festival participants responded to this initiative. When recycle bins and trash receptacles are placed, strategically, throughout event grounds, it is evident that responsible, environmental conscience choices are made. In 2016 and in 2017, attendees maintained some of the cleanest areas during Festival Acadiens et Creoles Annual Music Celebration.

Should you be interested in volunteering for trash clean up or would like to learn more on how to protect your environment, please contact us at 337-233-4077 x. 215 or

According to Keep Louisiana Beautiful, many everyday objects can be recycled. Look for the recycle symbol and start recycling things like aluminum, glass, paper, plastic bags & containers, steel, automotive parts, electronics, yard debris and food scraps. 

Share with us how you are joining the movement to reduce, reuse and recycle.

My spouse and i felt so thankful that Chris managed to carry out his homework by way of the ideas he obtained through the web site. It is now and again perplexing just to continually be handing out secrets and techniques that the rest have been trying to sell. And we also take into account we need you to thank because of that. The main illustrations you’ve made, the simple web site menu, the friendships you can give support to engender – it’s most remarkable, and it’s letting our son in addition to us imagine that the situation is awesome, and that’s extraordinarily mandatory. Thank you for the whole lot!
