The debris removal has focused on these areas:

  • Westminster and Pine Park
  • Tara
  • Old Goodwood
  • Shenandoah
  • Sherwood Forest
  • South Harrell’s Ferry
  • Jefferson and Bocage
  • North Sherwood
  • Mid City
  • Southdowns

While curbside debris collection is going to continue in those areas, debris removal is expected to begin in more areas this week.

Those areas include:

  • Broadmoor
  • Lobdell
  • Pollard Estates
  • Kenilworth
  • Jefferson Terrace
  • North Foster

The mayor’s office says, “City-Parish officials are advising that damaged fencing may not be covered by FEMA for emergency debris removal. As a result, Republic Services will soon begin picking up damaged fencing as part of normal garbage collection services and operations.”
