West Calcasieu Solid Waste Center to Reopen Saturday, Nov. 18

East Calcasieu site to close Tuesday, Nov. 21 for 6-8 weeks

Post Date:11/17/2017

The West Calcasieu Solid Waste Center, located at 2915 Post Oak Road in Sulphur, will reopen Saturday, Nov. 18, after being closed for about a month for construction.

Now, the East Calcasieu site, located at 5500 B Swift Plant Road in Lake Charles, will close for construction beginning Tuesday, Nov. 21. The closure will last an estimated 6-8 weeks.

Both Solid Waste Convenience Centers are receiving upgrades. The East Calcasieu site is expanding to allow for additional containers and increased capacity. Both sites will receive surface improvements and will also be equipped with new sheds for temporary storage of recyclable items.

Although the West Calcasieu site will reopen, please note that the site will not accept batteries until the new battery shelter is completed sometime in December.
