Residents of the east bank of Jefferson Parish could have their trash picked up on the normal schedule by the end of this week.
That's the word from Waste Connections, which collects the garbage for most of the parish.
A company official says trash pickup on the west bank could be back to its normal schedule by early next week.
After Hurricane Ida caused widespread power outages, residents emptied their fridges and freezers, and the summer heat has kicked up quite a smell.
A subcontractor that handles the west bank fell behind schedule, but plans to run extra trucks over the weekend to catch up.
