Contractor sought to remove woodwaste

The Lincoln Parish Police Jury has been dealing with nearly 12,000 tons of woodwaste at the landfill that they have been trying to get rid of, and at Tuesday night’s Police Jury Solid Waste and Recycling Committee meeting, members moved forward with the plan to remove the waste.
