LIVINGSTON PARISH, LA (WAFB) -
After three years of offering recycling in Livingston Parish, Jack
Fridge and Livingston Waste are now picking up trash. It's that trash
removal that is causing quite a stink, with parish attorneys now
reviewing the current ordinance and agreements. Fridge says his company
just wants to keep serving its 500 or so customers.
already here and we're already established and the things we want
changed isn't really anything and in reality those companies could have
already come and they could have been the ones going through what we're
having to go through," said Fridge.
For Livingston Waste the
issue is the language of the existing ordinance with regards to things
like bin size and insurance but parish officials say the danger is
making exceptions and opening the door for future requests.
one wants to shut them down but at the same time they've got to play on
the same playing field because we want to keep our rates down," said
Livingston Parish President Layton Ricks. "We don't want a bunch of
companies coming in picking and choosing where to operate and then we
end up with rates going up all over the parish."
"Being that are
trucks are smaller and easier on the ground it makes it easier and
cheaper for the parish really because they're not having to replace
roads as much," added Fridge. "We would just like to compete."
