Lafourche Parish Considers Buying Garbage Cans

Jan 14, 2013

Lafourche Parish Councilman Jerry Lafont wants a can in every driveway.

Specifically, Lafont is proposing the parish purchase standardized garbage cans for Lafourche residents to simplify the trash-collection process.

The proposal was put in the form of a resolution at this week's Parish Council meeting. The resolution asks Parish President Charlotte Randolph to appropriate $500,000 to purchase standardized cans for parish residents living outside Thibodaux, which has its own trash-collection contract.

Parish Solid Waste Manager Jerome Danos tells The Daily Comet Lafont's request is being taken into consideration in a comprehensive garbage collection study the parish will soon undertake.
