IESI started serving the communities of St. Landry Parish, Louisiana when we were awarded an exclusive five-year contract for all residential, roll-off and front-load collection.
Finding and switching to a new waste services provider for more than 33,000 homes and thousands of businesses was a challenge that kept Katry Martin, Executive Director of the Solid Waste Board in St. Landry Parish, awake at night. The growing parish needed to partner with a company that had the right experience to serve its citizens, not just today but for years to come.
“We heard that IESI had done a good job in neighboring communities and it was apparent that it was a responsible and responsive bidder,” says Mr. Martin. “IESI became a partner at the right moment in time when it became obvious that waste collection was beginning to deteriorate in the parish.”
Even before introducing service, IESI started preparing itself in order to ensure a seamless transition. The community appreciated this extra effort.
“Everything IESI promised has come to pass,” says Mr. Martin. “We have been overwhelmed with positive comments from our citizens and IESI has done a very good job for our business community too.”
The parish feels comfortable that IESI will meet its waste services needs regardless of how quickly its population grows.
“We don’t have a fear of the future with IESI,” says Mr. Martin. “We feel they will be here for the long haul and we expect to enjoy a long-term relationship.”
