PARISH’S NEW GARBAGE CONTRACTOR TO BEGIN MAY 1
Pelican Waste & Debris awarded contract at Nov. 28 Council Meeting
St. Charles Parish, LA - Pelican Waste & Debris, LLC will begin garbage collection for residents parishwide on May 1.
“The parish council and administration have worked hard on this contract and are ready to move forward with more efficient waste collection service for our residents,” said St. Charles Parish President Larry Cochran. “The new contract reflects what we have been working together toward: a price that stays the same, fully provides the services promised and puts customer service at the top of the priority list."
The St. Charles Parish Council awarded the contract at their Nov. 28, 2016 meeting in a unanimous vote amongst the members present.
“We are working very hard to get ready for the May 1, 2017 start date” said Pelican Waste General Manager Roddie Matherne “I want to assure the residents of St. Charles Parish that we care about providing them excellent service.”
All current garbage collection dates will remain the same. The company will use existing garbage carts and replace as necessary.
Residents should put carts curbside, with the lids closed and the back facing the road to allow for the semi-automated trucks to safely and properly dispose of the trash.
