Holiday week trash collection

Republic Services and the Recycling Foundation will not collect residential garbage or recycling in Lafayette Parish on Thanksgiving Day.

Customers who normally have their garbage or recycling collected on Thursday will have it collected on Friday instead. For those who ordinarily have garbage and recycling on Friday, it will be collected on Saturday, including excess collection.

Holiday bus service

Friday services will run on a Saturday schedule, and LTS offices will be closed Thursday and Friday.
