LCG: Register for AWS Additional Cart & Recycling Services

From Lafayette Consolidated Government:


Lafayette, LA – Acadiana Waste Services (AWS) is set to take over solid waste and recycling collection services in the City of Lafayette and unincorporated areas of Lafayette Parish beginning November 1, 2023.


Prior to November 1, all customers will be provided with a new 95-gallon waste collection container delivered at no charge. The new garbage cart will be black with a red lid. Residents who would like to order a second 95-gallon container to dispose of additional household garbage, may do so for an upfront one-time usage fee of $90. 


Recycling services are also available for residents of the City of Lafayette at no additional cost. All customers must register to receive a new forest green, 95-gallon container for curbside recycling services. Please note the cart is strictly for recycling-compliant material only.


To ensure that recycling carts and additional garbage carts are delivered by the November 1 start date, residents must order them beginning February 1, 2023 through May 31, 2023.
