“LCG wants to help citizens properly dispose of some items that you may not always get picked up curbside or that can’t fit into your cart,” stated LCG Environmental Quality Manager Bess Foret. “It’s a great time to do some Spring Cleaning, and with the help of AWS, Habitat for Humanity, and Bike Lafayette, we are offering an option to dispose of old trash and junk while working to divert items from the waste stream and find ways to reuse, repurpose, and recycle.”

To participate, you will be asked to present your I.D. And remember, this is for residents of unincorporated Lafayette Parish and the City of Lafayette only.

Residents should also be prepared to help unload all items.
