Jackson Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba listens with 
Richard's Disposal representatives Donnell Randolph, an operations manager, and Kimberly Mueller, a marketing staff member, during a town hall meeting about the city's residential garbage service and ongoing situation 
Thursday April 14, 2022 at New Jerusalem Church on Raymond Road.

As questions remain about the contract for Jackson’s emergency garbage vendor and legal action between the mayor and City Council continue, residents had the opportunity recently to ask questions about the garbage situation.

The city hosted a town hall last week to hear from residents about their experiences with service from Richard’s Disposal Inc.

Below are highlights from last week’s town hall and other information about the company picking up residents’ garbage. 

Who is the vendor picking up residents’ garbage?

New Orleans-based Richard’s Disposal Inc. has been collecting trash twice a week since April 1. 

The company has an emergency contract through March 30, 2023, though whether that contract has been valid is being disputed in court and through City Council meetings.
