Customers who live inside town are provided trash service at a discounted rate. This service is included on your water bill each month. When you establish new service be sure to let us know if a new can is needed at your location. For can replacements, or questions please us at Town Hall at 318-965-2781 during normal business hours. Trash Service is every Monday morning. (Early)

Yard waste and small limbs must be bagged and left at the curb.
Appliances and furniture items will be picked up if left at the curb. REMEMBER to remove appliance doors for child safety.

Meters are read between the 15th and 18th of each month. We are a drive by radio read system. Which means our meter reader does not have to physically read each meter.
Bills are generally mailed out to customers between 19th and 25th of each month.
Due Dates, Late Fees, and Disconnects:
Payments are due on the 12th of each month.
Customers who have a high bill due to a leak or filling a swimming pool will need to fill out a leak form and we will make an adjustment to the sewer portion of your bill. Adjustments are not made to the water portions of bills.
Please, provide the following documentation along with your completed Leak Form:
Number of gallons used to fill a swimming pool. (ie. a copy of the pool description)
For leak adjustments you will need to show proof that the leak was repaired. (ie. receipts from plumber, or receipts from hardware purchase if you repaired the leak yourself.)
Forms can be faxed to
P O Box 1390
