With Memorial Day weekend coming up, the City of Lake Charles is rescheduling some of its collection routes, city employees will observe a holiday on Monday the 28th for Memorial Day, the day we set aside to honor those who have given their lives in the defense of the United States.

It's a simple re-do, Monday pickups will be on Tuesday, Tuesday pickups will be made on Wednesday and the Thursday Friday routes will remain intact and business as usual. The schedule applies to both garbage and trash collections.

Also, the Team Green recycling truck and the Incinerator facility will be closed on Monday and reopen on Tuesday.

The city will resume its normal operations in all departments on Tuesday.
