In preparation for Thanksgiving, please be on alert that the city of Lake Charles will not be picking up trash on Thanksgiving day so workers can spend time with their families.

However, trash pickup will resume on Friday and trash that is scheduled to be picked up on Friday will be moved to Saturday, November 29.

The Team Green recycling truck will also not be available on Thanksgiving but will resume on Friday, November 29th.

All of the recycling stations including the Wood Waste Facility and the Nelson Ball Field will not be opened on Thanksgiving but will resume on Friday.

This is something that I have had to get adjusted to as well, as my day of pickup is Tuesday and I would always try to get ahead of the pack but would still miss them. I highly recommend you get your trash out the night before pickup so you won’t miss out on the run.
