DEBRIS & ELECTRONICS DROP-OFF DAY

Spring clean and get rid of unwanted household items

Lafayette, LA – 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. 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.
