Despite Mardi Gras being celebrated next week, there will be normal residential garbage and recycling collection for customers in Lafayette Parish.

Local officials say Tuesday garbage and recycling customers should still place their waste containers curbside on Monday evening for collection on Tuesday.

The same goes for the rest of Mardi Gras week as well.

The Lafayette Consolidated Government Compost Facility at 400 Dugas Road, though, will be closed on Mardi Gras day. It will re-open the following Wednesday at 7:00 a.m.
