Progressive Waste Solutions now picking up Vermilion Parish garbage
The Vermilion Parish Police Jury is no longer picking up garbage in Vermilion Parish. The new company picking up Vermilion Parish’s garbage is now Progressive Waste Solutions.
The private company, based out of Duson, began picking up house-to-house garbage cans last week after it signed a contract with the police jury last month.
In the past, if residents had complaints about their garbage or garbage cans, they would call the police jury’s solid waste department.
The police jury is asking the public to now call Progressive Waste Solutions about garbage pickup or garbage cans problems.
The number to call is 643-1046. The company has a satellite office in Kaplan with someone answering the phone five days a week (8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday).
Progressive Waste Solutions will bring its garbage to the parish landfill.
As of this time, garbage pickup will remain on the same days, however, the time of pickup has changed.
Drivers are rolling through the parish from 4 a.m. to 6 p.m in the afternoon.
The old Vermilion Parish Police Jury trucks will be used to pick up garbage in the parish.
