Household Hazardous Waste Day March 6

Lafayette, LA – Lafayette Consolidated Government (LCG) has scheduled the next Household Hazardous Waste Day (HHWD) on Saturday, March 6, from 8 a.m.-noon at the CAJUNDOME. Residents in the City of Lafayette and unincorporated areas of Lafayette Parish are encouraged to bring their unwanted household chemicals to be recycled or properly disposed.

Items typically brought in include paint, paint products, poison, chemical cleaners, gasoline, fluorescent tubes, alkaline batteries, and mercury. Due to several factors, LCG is unable to accept electronics at this event.

In addition, LCG is excited to announce that latex paint dropped-off by residents will be re-blended and packaged for Lafayette Habitat for Humanity to use. 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.

HHWD is offered at no cost to those living within the City of Lafayette or unincorporated areas of the Parish. Attendees should enter the CAJUNDOME parking lot on Reinhardt Drive off Cajundome Boulevard.
