Acadia Parish Police Jury

Crews collect “old” trash carts recently in the Midland area. The Acadia Parish Police Jury is threatening legal action against Waste Connections, Inc., its solid waste contractor, because of allegations that carts are being collected and not replaced.

More trash talk by police jury

Just two weeks into the new contract, the Acadia Parish Police Jury is threatening legal action against its solid waste collector.

A Waste Connections truck empties an “old” roll-out cart after emptying one of the “new” models during regular pick-up Tuesday morning in Rayne. The company currently is in the process of delivering the new, blue carts — one per residence — throughout the parish. Residents are encouraged to bring their old carts to the roadside on pick-up days whether or not they need to be emptied and to leave them at the road for at least 24 hours.

Cart change-out issues

A new plan is being put in place that should alleviate some of the problems parish residents are encountering with the replacement of trash carts.
