Trash Service Questions
New Trash Hauler for Lafayette
The city's trash and recycling service contract with Western Disposal concluded on October 2014.  This required a new solicitation for proposals and an organics collection was added to the curb side program.

Lafayette received three proposals and Republic Services was selected as the lowest responsible bidder with a 17% increase in prices.  Western Disposal proposed a 45% increase and lost the bid.

Public hearing was held on July 15, 2014 and bids were presented to Council. 

City of Lafayette Trash & Recycling Program

The city’s trash and recycling program is a pay-as-you-throw program. The less you throw away (based on trash container size), the less you will pay.

If you have extra trash, stickers for additional 32-gallon bags are available for $4. Purchase stickers at the Finance Department at 1290 S. Public Rd.

Value Added Services With New Program
Included in the new trash and recycle program prices Lafayette residents will also be offered the following: 

These new services will not begin until 2015.
  • Free citywide curbside bulk pick up once a year above the already included free quarterly bulk pick up currently offered
  • Free finished compost in Spring offered at the City Service Center
  • Free Fall leaf and limb curbside pick up every Fall

HOA communities, please call your HOA manager for trash service information.
