The City of Jackson, still does not have a long term contract for garbage collection. The Jackson City Council rejected the proposal of a New Orleans-based company this week. The company, Richard’s Disposal had proposed giving residents 96 gallon carts for trash disposal.  The carts would have to be replaced, at residents’ cost, if lost or stolen.  Council members raised questions about the company’s ability to pick up the trash, and the need for 96-gallon carts.
