New Orleans residents are letting city officials know they're fed up with not having their trash collected.

On Friday at City Hall, the public asked officials about the issue, along with Jimmie Woods, CEO of Metro Service Group, the city's largest waste management contractor.

On Saturday, hundreds of protesters turned out at the corner of Elysian Fields and St. Claude avenues, dressed in litter-themed costumes, to stage a "trash parade".

They say the problem started before Hurricane Ida made landfall on August 29.
