Republic Services in Lafayette will be altering its regular pickup schedule in preparation for Tropical Storm Barry.

There will be no change to today's schedule.

Republic will also be working to remove any remaining debris that could be hazardous in strong winds.

On Friday, July 12, 2019, all commercial routes will begin at 12:00 a.m. and all municipal routes will begin by 4:00 a.m.

Residential customers who normally receive garbage or recycling collection on Friday are encouraged to place their carts out the night before for tomorrow's collection. Residents are also asked to discontinue pruning or cutting of trees or yard waste until after the storm passes.

Republic will suspend operations beginning tomorrow at 12 p.m. to ensure its drivers can travel safely and to begin their own storm prep.

No routes will be run on Saturday.

Operations will resume after the storm clears and roads are safe to travel.

The LCG Compost Facility at 400 Dugas Rd. (a sandbagging site) will be closed on Saturday.
