BFI/Allied Waste/Republic Services, which currently collects solid waste in the city of Lafayette and unincorporated parts of the parish, was awarded the city of Lafayette curbside residential recycling contract in exchange for a five-year extension of its existing garbage contract with Lafayette Consolidated Government.
The five-year extension of the solid waste contract is worth $73.5 million. The solid waste contract will now expire Oct. 31, 2023.
