Curbside recycling is available to those residing in the City of Lafayette in a house, duplex, or triplex. Residents having the "total environmental charge" on their monthly Lafayette Utilities System bill are eligible for curbside recycling.
Visit the Recycling Guidelines page for more information on what can and cannot be recycled curbside.
Drop-off recycling - Residents without curbside recycling can drop off recyclables at the Republic Services office, located at 102 BJ Services Drive. The same items that are collected with the curbside recycling program can be dropped off. Times are M-F 8am-5pm and Saturday 8am-12pm.
Please consider what you are purchasing and using. Can it be recycled or reused? Are you creating more waste than necessary? We can all do our share to protect our resources by reducing the amount of trash we send to the landfill.
Call (337) 291-5637 to get more information on Reducing, Reusing, and Recycling.
NOTICE OF NEW SOLID WASTE COLLECTION SERVICES PROVIDER
Acadiana Waste Services (AWS) is set to take over solid waste and recycling collection services in the City of Lafayette and unincorporated areas of Lafayette Parish beginning November 1, 2023.
Prior to November 1, all customers will be provided with a new 95-gallon waste collection container delivered at no charge. The new garbage cart will be black with a red lid. Residents who would like to order a second 95-gallon container to dispose of additional household garbage, may do so for an upfront one-time usage fee of $90.
