While things have been getting back on track with our local garbage system in the city, I have some good news for you. There will be two Solid Waste Convenience Centers reopening this Thursday.

The two locations will be at 2915 Post Oak Road in Sulphur and 5500 B Swift Plant Road in Lake Charles. While they will be reopening, there will be restrictions. Until further notice, the centers will only accept residential household waste.

Items including paper, cardboard, aluminum cans, and plastic bottles and jugs are also being accepted. No commercial or industrial waste is accepted. For the Calcasieu Parish residents, they must stop by the attendant's booth and have their driver's licenses scanned to verify residency.

Both sites will be open 7:00am-5:00pm Thursday-Monday. They will be closed Tuesday and Wednesday of each week. For more detail,  call 337-721-3700, 337-721-3750 or 337-721-3760, or click here.
