The Labor Day holiday is coming up this weekend. People will be making plans to go out of town or since football is starting this weekend, they will be heading out to local high school football games and McNeese will also be playing here in Lake Charles.

Federal and state offices will be closing, like the City Of Lake Charles, to celebrate the holiday so that means your trash or garbage pickup schedule will change as well. We wanted to give you the heads-up for the residents of Lake Charles that during the Labor Day holiday, your trash day and time pickup will be changed.

Lake Charles Trash Schedule for Labor Day Weekend

Lake Charles residents who have their trash and garbage picked up on Mondays will be rescheduled for pickup on Tuesday, September 5, 2023.

If your trash and garbage are normally picked up on Tuesday will be rescheduled for pickup on Wednesday, September 6, 2023.

The city of Lake Charles said that Thursday and Friday routes will remain on their regular schedules.

All other services of the Department of Public Works and other City Departments, including Lake Charles City Hall and all Recycling Operations (Nelson Ball Field/Alma Ln, Wood Waste Facility, and Roving Green Truck) will be closed on Monday, September 4, but will resume regular hours of operation on Tuesday, September 5.

As a reminder containers and other items for removal shall be placed before the hour of 7 a.m. on collection day or on the evening proceeding collection day. Containers shall be removed no later than 7 pm on the day of collection.
