Every street in the area seems to be dealing with some sort of trash drama, but in Orleans Parish it's really bad in many places. So 2 men decided to take matters into their own hands...and their own trucks. Marlon “Buck” Horton and Lucky Johnson decided to start their own trash service so they bought some trailers and started cleaning up.
If you want their new company, Clean the Block, to pick-up your trash you text them a picture and they'll text you back a quote for how much it will cost. So are you paying the city to pick up the trash and then also paying these guys? Yes... but desperate times, am I right? LOL.
I think it's pretty great how they saw a need and jumped into action. You can read more on this at WGNO.com. Want to stay up to date on the latest from the city as we recover from the storm? Our sister station WWL is always there for you with the latest local news.
