Biloxi asking residents to secure trash and recycling carts

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Even with a new trash company in Harrison County, some residents still have their old Waste Pro cans and recycling bins in addition to new trash
cans and recycling bins from Team Waste.

"We are monitoring Nate closely and have been making plans with Gulfport and our other municipal clients on the Mississippi Gulf Coast," said Chief Operating Officer Tim Herman. "We were unable to remove the carts prior to the end of our term. We have collected several thousand carts, but we are escalating the pace of our collection now that our contract has ended."

With the threat of Tropical Storm Nate, Biloxi is asking all residents whose carts have not been picked up by Friday afternoon or Saturday to move them from the curb to a secure location.
