Lafayette Consolidated Government has announced the trash pickup schedule for the Christmas and New Year's holidays.

KATC reports that Republic Services "will not collect residential garbage or recycling in Lafayette Parish on Christmas Day or New Year’s Day."

Republic says instead of Friday, collection will be the next day on Saturday.

Obviously you might generate a bit more garbage than usual over the holidays, so to make pickup goes as smoothly as possible, Republic says that "waste must be bagged, should not exceed 35 pounds, and sit three feet away from waste and recycling carts."
