In case your wondering whether the city or the parish is going to pick up your garbage on Tuesday, relax, everyone will be at the parades and all government offices and non-emergency services will have a day off.

Trash and garbage normally picked up on Tuesday in Lake Charles will be picked up Wednesday; Monday, Thursday and Friday routes all remain the same. Parish customers using Waste Management garbage schedules will remain intact.

While ordinarily open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, the Team Green incinerator will be closed on Mardi Gras, as will the Residential Solid Waste centers in Lake Charles and Sulphur.
