Lake Charles Green Guide

The City of Lake Charles Public Works Department is proud to present the newest edition of the Green Guide. The Green Guide was established in 2007 to provide the citizens of Lake Charles a comprehensive booklet that addresses the proper ways to recycle, and the disposal of unwanted items. One of the city’s main objectives for recycling is to reduce disposal costs and reduce the overall waste stream that goes into the disposal site.

The City of Lake Charles appreciates your interest in its recycling program and encourages area citizens to utilize the Green Guide as a tool to assist them in doing their part to reduce, reuse, and recycle unwanted items. This would make the Lake Area an environmentally greener and safer place to live, work, and play.
