Calcasieu Parish Solid Waste Convenience Centers to Reopen on Thursday, November 19 With Restrictions

Published November 17, 2020

From the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury:

The two Residential Solid Waste Convenience Centers, located at 2915 Post Oak Road in Sulphur and 5500 B Swift Plant Road in Lake Charles, will reopen Thursday, Nov. 19 – with restrictions.

Until further notice, the centers will only accept residential household waste.

Items for recycling – paper, cardboard, aluminum cans, and plastic bottles and jugs – will also be accepted.

A reminder that these sites are for residential waste only – no commercial or industrial waste is accepted. Also, the sites are for Calcasieu Parish residents only – residents must stop by the attendant’s booth and have their driver’s licenses scanned to verify residency.

The following restrictions will be enforced:

  • No trailers: This is to limit the volume and to avoid creating traffic jams.
  • No construction/demolition debris: This includes lumber, sheetrock, insulation, roofing material, siding, white goods, and related items.
  • No vegetation: Trees, tree limbs, stumps, plants, landscaping waste.

Calcasieu Parish’s debris contractor will continue collecting hurricane generated debris for several months.

Employees will inspect all residents’ waste before they are allowed entry into the sites.

Both sites will be open 7 a.m.- 5 p.m. Thursday – Monday (they are closed Tuesday and Wednesday of each week).

Since there may be lines of vehicles waiting at the sites, drivers are asked to use caution and be mindful of workers and traffic.
