NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

People complaining about 58,000 trash cans being stored in their Algiers neighborhood should get relief soon.

According to our partners at Nola.com|The Times-Picayune, the City of New Orleans has hired a vendor to remove old Richard's Disposal cans being stored in a field off Terry Parkway.

People who live and work nearby say the cans have attracted mosquitoes, flies, rats and coyotes. 

The cans have a new owner, following a deal that was finalized at auction earlier this month. They were required to be replaced under a new waste disposal contract.
