BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD) – St. John the Baptist Parish President has taken emergency action to remove high amounts of waste by issuing an Emergency Household Waste Bid.
Bids will be opened Sunday, Sept. 18 at 10 a.m.
“My main priority right now is getting the trash off the street for our residents; therefore, taking emergency actions were necessary,” said Parish President Jacyln Hotard.
Hotard said that the usual residential waste vendor will continue to pick up every day but the damage caused by Hurricane Ida needs emergency action.
“I want to thank residents for their patience and cooperation as we work to get all garbage collected,” Hotard said.
