|Jury approves garbage contract transfer|
The Concordia Parish Police Jury unanimously approved a contract transfer for parishwide garbage collection to Waste Connections, which operates the White Oaks Landfill in Monroe.
Waste Connections is purchasing Diamond Disposal, owned by John Bunning. Diamond Disposal has held the parish contract for garbage disposal since the mid 1990s.
White Oaks District Manager Danny Massey said the Jury's present contact with Diamond Disposal, which expires at year's end, will be honored.
Massey attended the Jury's meeting Monday night with Bunning's wife. Massey said Bunning was attending the Catahoula Parish Police Jury meeting to announce the sale.
Waste Connections will buy Diamond Disposal's parish facility and all employees will remain on the payroll, Bunning said.
Approval of the transfer is contingent on review by District Attorney Brad Burget.
"John wants to sell his business and we're interested in buying it," Massey told jurors "Everything in the present contract stands."
Jurors praised the service of Diamond Disposal.
"When I first came on the Jury we talked about garbage at every meeting for four years," Randy Temple said. He said the problems went away when Diamond Disposal was hired.
"Are y'all going to do as good a job?" Tiffee asked Massey, "because they did an excellent job."
Massey said that was the company's intent.
Jury President Melvin Ferrington said Diamond Disposal "worked great" with the Jury.
