LAFAYETTE, La. (LCG)-In preparation of Tropical Storm Barry, Republic Services will be altering its regular pickup schedule.
There will be no change to today’s schedule. Republic will be collecting waste as well as working to remove any and all remaining debris that could be hazardous in strong winds.
