Ricky White, president of Jackie White Inc., which operates and repairs the landfill pickup station and hauls garbage to the Union Parish Landfill to be buried, entered into a new contract with the jury that was effective January 2011. According to the terms of the contract, the jury would pay White $16.53 per ton of garbage hauled.
