Household Hazardous Waste Day

This Saturday, October 20, is Lafayette's semi-annual Household Hazardous Waste collection day. For residents of the city of Lafayette and unincorporated areas of the parish, the event serves as a way to have those household chemicals collected and disposed of properly.

Paint, paint chemicals, cleaners, pool chemicals and batteries are among the accepted items, along with a variety of electronics. For the full list of what's accepted, check out the Lafayette Consolidated Government website.

All collected paint will be reblended by Habitat for Humanity and sold at the ReStore.

A few tips if you plan to participate in this Saturday's collection:
  • Have your ID available as proof of your residence within city limits or in the unincorporated areas of the parish.
  • Enter the Cajun Field parking lot at Gate 3 from Congress Street. 
  • The event is open from 8am-noon, but lines can get long. The earlier you arrive, the less you'll have to wait.
  • If you have liquid items, make sure the containers are properly closed, as leaky containers won't be accepted.
