Lafayette Parish residents can take advantage of Lafayette Consolidated Government (LCG) and Republic Services Debris & Electronics Drop-off Day to get rid of household junk. This is a chance to dispose of items that aren’t typically picked up curbside or can’t fit into a cart.

LCG is working with electronic recycling management company MRM and television manufacturer TCL, according to an LCG spokesperson. Both will be on site collecting TVs and other electronics. LCG continues its partnership with Bike Lafayette, a nonprofit organization that collects old bikes to rebuild them. Repaired bikes will be donated to children and adults in need.

The event will be held at UL Lafayette Cajun Field April 17, 2021, from 8 a.m.-noon
