GONZALES - Ascension Parish residents could receive garbage pickup twice a week and weekly recycling services as soon as next year.
The Ascension Parish Council is considering adopting mandatory guidelines for minimal services for any garbage collector who wants to work in the parish. The council's Strategic Planning Commission received a copy of the proposed guidelines earlier this month and is expected to further discuss the issue at its next meeting March 4.
The current proposal would give residents two options.
One option would include weekly garbage pickup while the second option includes twice-a-week pickup, an option being offered for the first time.
Both options also include weekly recycling and small brush pickup, which also could be available on a call-out basis rather than monthly.
