A Special Message From Metro Service Group Regarding Trash Collection  


Dear Neighbors:


Metro Service Group continues to make progress in recruiting additional drivers and catching up on various routes.  We sympathize fully with those residents who have experienced a delay in garbage pickup service. There is light at the end of the tunnel, and we are working 24/7 to expedite a return to regularized and on-time collections. In the meantime, we are grateful for the patience many people have shown as we work through these challenges. 

Regardless of the level of frustration you may have, we would ask that you show the hard-working men and women of Metro and the other companies that collect trash and recycling in the city the highest level of respect during this difficult time.


Our Progress


Over last weekend, we temporarily reassigned drivers from our operations in Mississippi who worked tirelessly to ensure pick-ups at thousands of houses in several neighborhoods. Additionally, new fulltime drivers have also been recruited and we are doubling down on our efforts to enlist staffing agencies and other resources to provide additional labor.

We are grateful for the support of some of our peers in the sanitation industry, Richards, Ramelli and Waste Pro, who recognize that this is an acute national problem that has hit home here in New Orleans over the last several weeks. For more on why this situation is happening here and the national context of a shortage of sanitation workers please consider the following:




Several residents have asked why we cannot simply hire anyone who might be looking for a job.  Here’s why: Our shortage is in qualified drivers, not hoppers.  By law, and based on the demands of our insurance carrier, all drivers must have a clean driving record, a Commercial Driver’s License and two years of experience driving a commercial truck.  They must also pass all required drug and alcohol tests.  With many people still not returning to work following the pandemic, the pool of qualified drivers is limited, and competition is very steep. This article further demonstrates the acute national challenges many cities and companies are facing:

We are continuing to update our website ( and invite the public to monitor the site for new information as it is made available.  


Again, from the women and men of Metro Service Group, Inc., thank you for your patience as we seek to recruit additional drivers and get back to business as usual, on time collections and clean streets.
