BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD)- The Office of Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome, announces that the City-Parish crews are underway to complete the third and final collection for the debris removal from Hurricane Ida on Sunday, Nov. 21, 2021.
The press release states that more than 918,000 cubic yards of debris have been removed from residents curbsides.
“As our largest and most complex debris removal program since the 2016 flood comes to a close, I want to thank all of our residents for their patience, communication and understanding throughout this process,” said Mayor Broome. “This is an important step in our community’s recovery from Hurricane Ida, which remains ongoing, as one of my administration’s top priorities.”
Residents do not need to contact the City-Parish to collect their storm debris. City-Parish environmental specialists and debris monitors are assessing debris removal piles residents have placed curbside and will direct trucks to these locations as part of this final pass, the release states.
