HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Many soldiers at Camp Shelby are having a hard time getting their laundry done Thursday evening. This comes after the base's laundry service contract expired Wednesday. 

A new service provider is set for a new contract but base leaders say the new provider can't begin operations until the old provider moves their equipment.

In the meantime, a substantial amount of washers and dryers are inoperable with only two buildings currently useable. Leaders hope all washers and dryers will be back in operation within a week.
