Allied Waste and the Recycling Foundation will not collect garbage, nor recycling, on Thanksgiving Day.
Customers who normally receive garbage or recycling collection on Thursday or Friday will receive collection the day following their regular collection this week. Regular Thursday customers will receive collection on the Friday after Thanksgiving, and regular Friday customers will be collected on Saturday.
Allied Waste customers will have excess garbage collected, which is outside of the 96-gallon garbage cart, on their first service day after Thanksgiving. Thursday and Friday garbage customers receive the excess collection on Friday and Saturday of this week, along with their adjusted garbage collection. Monday through Wednesday customers receive the excess collection Nov. 26-28, on their regularly-scheduled collection day, the week following Thanksgiving.
The excess collection is for garbage generated from holiday celebrations and all excess garbage must be bagged, with individual bags not to exceed 35 pounds. Bagged garbage should be placed three feet away from the automated garbage cart.
The Lafayette Consolidated Government Compost Facility at 400 Dugas Rd. will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, and Friday and Saturday following Thanksgiving. The facility will reopen on Monday, Nov. 26 at 7 a.m.
