Recycling could be a thing of the past for several Lafayette Parish schools. For years, recycling services were free, but starting next month, schools will have to foot the bill.

Every year, Lafayette High recycles more than 120,000 gallons of material, that's more than 10,000 gallons each month.

Jonathan Dewitt with Progressive Waste says they've offered recycling as a community service for about a decade free of charge to area schools.

He says transportation and labor cost have gone up and they can't continue "free" service.
