Lafayette Consolidated Government’s (LCG) next Household Hazardous Waste Day (HHWD) is Saturday, October 20 from 8 a.m. until noon at Cajun Field. Residents in the City of Lafayette and unincorporated areas of Lafayette Parish are encouraged to bring their unwanted household chemicals and electronics to be recycled or properly disposed.

In addition to the traditional chemicals for disposal such as paint, poison, chemical cleaners, gasoline and mercury, this edition of the popular disposal day will include an electronic waste disposal option, sponsored by CGI and Capital Area Corporate Recycling Council (CACRC),

Residents can also turn in unwanted latex paint on October 20, which will be re-blended and repackaged for use by Lafayette Habitat for Humanity. The paint re-blending project not only provides a needed product benefiting a worthy cause, it also significantly reduces waste and saves on disposal costs.

Residents are also encouraged to bring fluorescent tubes, alkaline batteries, televisions, and CRT monitors.


HHWD is offered at no additional cost to those living within the City of Lafayette or unincorporated areas of the parish. Residents are asked to take advantage of this event in order to properly dispose of hazardous household materials.

Attendees should enter the Cajun Field parking lot at Gate 3 from Congress. The event is scheduled from 8 a.m. until noon.
