BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – If you still have debris from Hurricane Delta in your front yard, don’t worry, debris removal crews are on the way soon.
Over the last week, crews have collected almost 5,000 cubic yards of storm debris, according to the mayor’s office.
The debris removal has focused on these areas:
- Westminster and Pine Park
- Old Goodwood
- Sherwood Forest
- South Harrell’s Ferry
- Jefferson and Bocage
- North Sherwood
- Mid City
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:
- Pollard Estates
- Jefferson Terrace
- North Foster
- Glen Oaks
- Oak Hills
- Hoo Shoo Too
- Elliot Road
- Tiger Bend Road
- Riverbend and the Highland Road corridor between Siegen and Interstate 10
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.”
