Waste Connections Services says their commercial and or residential trash pickup in several Acadiana parishes will continue as normal and employees will see a bonus for their work.

The company takes care of trash services in Acadia, St. Martin, St. Landry, Vermilion, Iberia and Lafayette Parish.

"We would like to ensure all customers that we will continue service," Coy Cormier with Waste Connections says.

In an incentive to workers, Waste Connection announced that hourly employees will receive a $2.00 per hour bonus for all hours worked for the next four weeks as the state continues working to flatten the curve from the coronavirus.

"Our folks are doing a difficult job safely, while showing care and concern for their co-workers, customers, those less fortunate, and juggling the needs of their families. We want to show them our appreciation while they continue to service our communities," Cormier said.
