Waveland Alderman Jeremy Burke gives a rundown of the upcoming St. Clare Seafood Festival, a report about the city's new Blessing Box, and an update on the county's new waste removal company.
- by Jeremy Burke
The St. Clare Seafood Festival will not only have great food, carnival rides and craft vendors, it is adding a fireworks show on Sunday at 10 pm to close out the festival. St. Clare will also be holding a classic car show on Saturday, May 28 on the church grounds. The car show will begin at 8 am, with awards handed out at 2 pm.
The festival is a good way to have a great time, all while supporting St. Clare this Memorial Day weekend. Mark your calendars!
Waveland Blessing Box
The St. Stanislaus Key Club and the school’s construction class worked together to fundraise and construct a Blessing Box. The Blessing Box is located near the parking lot at the Waveland Library. When you are blessed and have more than you need, please leave what you can in the box. And when you need more than you have, you can visit the Blessing Box and take what you need.
These are the item commonly donated and used to stock the Blessing Box.
Garbage and Debris Collection -
Coast Environmental Services
After a very thorough RFP and interview process, the board members of the Hancock County Regional Solid Waste Management Authority have selected Coastal Environmental Services (CES) as the new provider for garbage and debris collection. Effective May 1, 2022, CES will begin providing garbage and debris collection services to the residents of Bay St. Louis, Diamondhead, Waveland, and the unincorporated areas of Hancock County. CES will be utilizing brand new 2022 Automated Side Loader (ASL) trucks that were purchased specifically for use in Hancock County.
Every customer will receive one new 95-gallon cart from CES. The carts are currently being distributed, and many customers have already received their new carts. Please do not use the new cart until May 1. You may rent an additional cart for $12 per year by contacting CES at 228-299-0537, or by email at email@example.com. You can continue to use your own personal cart; however, it must be shaped like the 95-gallon cart you receive from CES. No barrels or round personal cans will be serviced.
If you have a cart from the current provider, it will be collected after your last collection day in April. Please leave your current cart at the curb, and it will be picked up prior to May 1.
Your waste collection day(s) will remain the same as they are now. While there is no change in date, please be aware that the timing of your pickup may fluctuate. To ensure that all garbage is picked up, residents should place their cart(s) at the curb the night prior to your service day. All carts should be at least three feet away from mailboxes, posts, poles, parked vehicles, and fire hydrants. Carts should not be placed under any wires or trees. Residents should place the cart(s) to the curb with the handles of the cart facing their residence. All household waste should be containerized. The household waste should be bagged and placed into the trash can.
Bulk waste and yard debris will be picked up twice per month. Bulk waste and yard debris pickup is limited to 8 cubic yards per unit, per month. Bulk waste and yard debris shall not exceed 4 feet wide by 6 feet long and 3 feet tall. Please do not place bulk waste next to mailboxes, posts, poles, parked vehicles, or fire hydrants.
Construction and demolition waste generated by a contractor is not eligible for bulk waste collection.
Residents may contact Coastal Environmental Services at 228-299-0537. The company will be able to answer any questions you may have concerning your garbage collection. If you have an issue with your cart, email CES at firstname.lastname@example.org. To report a possible missed pick-up, email CES at email@example.com. For more information, visit the company website at www.ces-ms.com. You can also follow CES on Facebook.
