LCG is working hard to remove debris from Tropical Storm Barry from around the community as quickly as possible. In the meantime, LCG asks residents to be aware of the following in preparation for the upcoming collection:

Yard waste debris should be separate from ANY other type of debris, including construction and treated wood.

If using a container for yard waste, it must be less than a 35 gallon container and weigh less than 50 pounds.

Yard waste can also be collected in piles or bagged, but please keep debris clear of obstructions such as power lines.

Yard waste may not be collected on regular waste collection days.

Due to different equipment and staff needed, entire neighborhoods or streets may not be collected all at the same time, but they will be collected.

Utilize the curbside storm debris collection rather than bringing waste to the LCG Compost Facility. Following the recent storm, the compost yard has reached capacity and cannot accept any additional yard waste loads at this time. Crews are working to clear the way for new yard waste and the public will be notified when the Compost Facility is able to accept more yard waste material. The temporary cessation at the Compost Facility will NOT delay curbside yard waste collection.

LCG says the public's patience is greatly appreciated as they work to remove debris from the city of Lafayette and the surrounding unincorporated areas.

Additional information and instructions will be provided as necessary.
