If you're planning on working in your garden this weekend, you'll want to know that the Lafayette Consolidated Government Compost Facility at 400 Dugas Rd. will close at noon on Friday, remaining closed throughout the weekend and Memorial Day, and will reopen Tuesday, May 28.

Allied Waste and the Recycling Foundation will run their regularly scheduled garbage and recycling collection routes on Memorial Day in Lafayette Parish, and throughout Acadiana. All customers served by Allied Waste and the Recycling Foundation should set waste out the evening before their regularly scheduled collection day during the entire week of  Memorial Day.  There are no changes to the waste collection schedule the entire week of Memorial Day.
