The St. Landry Parish Solid Waste Commission voted unanimously at a special meeting Tuesday to create a multi-agency task force to help solve residential waste collection problems in unincorporated areas of the parish.
Members of the task force will study ways to settle garbage collection issues for residents who live on private roads or in rural subdivisions and report it back to the commission.
Commission Road Inspector Velton Stelly said progressive waste solutions will not send its trucks down private roads...but said the company will pick up garbage from individuals living on private roads if trash cans are placed on nearby public roads on collection days.
Stelly said a problem occurs when people bring their trash cans to a public road for garbage pickup and leave them throughout the week.
