Parish Government Signs New Garbage Contract with Pelican Waste and Debris, LLC

Recycling to be offered at the Parish’s Transfer Stations

Pelican to host a Job Fair on June 9th at Sigur Civic Center

Parish President Guy McInnis announced that St. Bernard Parish Government has entered into a contract with Pelican Waste and Debris, LLC for residential/commercial garbage pick-up and waste disposal services. The new contract, which begins on July 6, 2016, will save the parish over $700,000.00 annually and will drastically increase services to the residents of the parish. Parish Government will pay approximately $3.00 less per can per month for residential garbage collection; with an estimated 15,000 households this will save the parish approximately $45,000.00 per month. There will also be a considerable savings with front loader and roll off collections and disposals. This vastly improved service will allow St. Bernard Parish Government to continue its cost savings and restructuring program.

Garbage Collection: Pelican Waste will bring six (6) brand new trucks to the parish and every household will receive a new 95 gallon cart. An additional cart may be purchased at a cost of $65 each (dates for the delivery of new carts will be announced in a future press release). However, Pelican will pick up any 95 gallon cart placed on the curb. Garbage collection will continue two (2) days per week.

Transfer Stations: Pelican Waste will operate the parish’s transfer stations at no additional cost to the parish. The transfer stations are located at 5120 Paris Road in Chalmette and 7701 E. Judge Perez Drive, St. Bernard. Transfer Station Hours will remain opened 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (Open to St. Bernard Parish residents only).

Recyling: Recycle Bins will be placed at the Parish’s two (2) transfer stations for residents to drop off single stream recycle materials such as newspaper, paperboard, corrugated fiberboard and plastic.

Additional services provided by Pelican Waste at no additional cost to Parish Government include:

  • Pick up additional debris on the side of the can up to 6 feet long and 75 pounds (with the exception of contractor’s debris)
  • Provide Handicapped Services for the residents of the parish
  • Provide roll off containers and front loader dumpsters for St. Bernard Parish Festivals
  • Provide rear loader truck and employees to ride behind parade route and collect debris
  • All dumpsters and trucks will be sanitized with Bubble Gum power sense concentrated odor neutralizer
  • Provide event boxes (cardboard cans) for Parish sponsored events

Complaints: Contractor will handle all complaints within 24 hours or less and provide Parish Government with results by the next business day.

Breach of Services: Liquidated damages are in place for breaches of services such as missed pick-ups, failure to secure, prevent and clean-up of leakage of fluids or littering of materials, out of time compliance, repetition of complaints, failure to replace containers or address complaints.

Pelican Waste will host a Job Fair on Thursday, June 9th in the Grand Ballroom of the Sigur Civic Center, located at 8245 W. Judge Perez Drive, Chalmette. The job fair will run from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
