In response to the recent news about the change in garbage contractors in the French Quarter: It seems the way that Empire was able to undercut the other companies was by promising services they aren’t delivering.

Since they took over, we had suspected that our recycling and garbage were being thrown into a single truck.

Yesterday, my husband drove behind their truck while just that happened. If recycling is to no longer be included in our garbage services, then please tell us so we can contract with a private company.

But really, it is inexcusable that they would not actually collect recycling for recycling. No wonder they’re offering to collect glass!
