A since of community is a big part of the Waste Connection make up. And Louisiana Regional Landfill Company strives at keeping a healthy relationship with the communities that surround Jefferson Parish Landfill through community driven programs. Currently we have 2 such programs available.
- Scholarships – Each Year Louisiana Regional Landfill Company offers fifteen one thousand dollar scholarships to graduating seniors and active college students who reside in Jefferson Parish. Applications become available in January of each year and scholarships are awarded in May.
- Christmas Promise Bike Giveaway – For the past 19 years Waste Connections has given bikes to needy families across the country for Christmas. In 2019, with the help of employee and vendor donations, Louisiana Regional Landfill Company was able to deliver 55 bikes to local children who might not have otherwise received gifts for Christmas. We plan to increase that number every year.
