Allied Waste Taking Off
November 20, 2012 — Allied Waste will not be collecting garbage nor recycling on Thanksgiving day in Lafayette Parish.
"For the week of Thanksgiving, of course, Allied Waste and the Recycling Foundation will give their employees off on Thanksgiving day. So the only people affected with garbage and recycling collection are the Thursday and Friday customers."--Mark Pope--Environmental Quality Manager
Regular Thursday customers will be collected on Friday, and Friday customers receive service on Saturday. All customers in Lafayette Parish served by Allied Waste will have collection of excess waste that does not fit in the automated garbage cart. If the garbage is bagged and placed on the ground three feet away from the garbage cart it will be picked up. All allied waste customers receive the excess collection on their first collection day following Thanksgiving. The Lafayette Consolidated Government Compost Facility will be closed Thanksgiving, Friday, and Saturday.
