If you don't realize the Easter weekend is coming up next Friday through Sunday, April 15th to the 17th.

So with that being said, Good Friday is next week which means that most of the government facilities and services will be closed for the holiday on Friday the 15th.

The city of Lake Charles has announced that they will be observing the holiday which will alter your garbage and trash pickup.  According to the city of Lake Charles, the changes in trash and garbage pickup are as follows:
