Lafayette Consolidated Government announced that they are hosting a Debris Drop Day March 17, 2018, at Brown Park & at The Robicheaux Center.

Those who wish to take advantage of the day should be prepared to unload all debris on their own. As for what they are accepting at the two drop-off locations here's what you can dispose of:

Old tires, old wood and metal, furniture, appliances, carpet and padding, and other construction debris. There is a limit of five tires per person.

Smaller waste such as old clothes, shoes, and other items should be contained in a bag or box. Larger items such as old bicycles, barbeque pits, and steel mounting poles for basketball backboards will also be accepted.

According to the Lafayette Consolidated Government post here are the things you CANNOT drop-off: Automotive batteries, chemicals, compressed gas cylinders, and any power equipment with a gasoline engine.

For other large items that you may have at your home and wish to dispose of, pamphlets will be available at the drop-off sites this weekend to instruct you how to have the unwanted items picked up.

We should note here that only waste items from households within LCG’s jurisdiction will be accepted.
