Trash hauling to cost parish more
It will soon cost the parish a little more to have trash transported for disposal.
During a meeting of the Lincoln Parish Police Jury Solid Waste and Recycling Committee on Tuesday, members voted 5-1 to approve a 5 percent rate increase for hauling contractor Jackie White, Inc.
The company operates and repairs the landfill pickup station and hauls garbage to the Union Parish Landfill, where it is buried.
Committee Chair Walter Pullen said the parish’s five-year contract with Jackie White Inc. permitted such a request.
