The Concordia Parish Sheriff’s Office and Concordia Parish Police Jury have announced the guidelines and protocols for garbage pickup in the parish.

CPPJ recently terminatedits contract with Waste Pro for garbage pickup and entered into a mutual aid agreement with the Concordia Parish Sheriff’s Office to provide the service.

The decision came during a special meeting July 21.

Jury Secretary-Treasurer Sandi Burley said Tuesday that CPSO “has boots on the ground andis working on getting the garbage picked up. There are hiccups with some places being missed on what would be their ‘normal’ pickup day. With anything, there will be issues at first.”

She said the Jury was asking for patience from residents “until we get all the wrinkles smoothed out.”

CPSO requested that the public only dispose of household trash as it transitions into this new service and also asks: “Please be patient as we are attempting to retrieve large amounts of household waste left behind by the previous waste contractor due to circumstances beyond our control. “

As the parish transitions its waste collection service, all residents are asked to only dispose of household trash. Items too large to fit inside a trashcan will not be picked up during the next 30 days.”

CPSO said that effective Monday, August 2, the following collection guidelines were in place:

   COLLECTION GUIDELINES & PROTOCOL

  • All garbage must be bagged and contained; not responsible for loose garbage.
  • Garbage trucks must cease operations during lightening/inclement weather events.
  • Garbage trucks shall only use Parish roads for collection; non-Parish roads must bring trash to the closest public route.
  • Garbage routes will be running on holidays except on the days of: Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's. Garbage will be picked up the following day unless that day is a weekend, in which it will be scheduled on Monday along with normal route pick up.
