Local News

BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD) – The debris removal efforts in East Baton Rouge Parish are dwindling down as preparations for final passes begin.

Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome announced that since Hurricane Ida passed in August, more than 800,000 cubic yards of debris have been collected. Broome said debris removal crews will begin the second or third pass depending on the area.

“More than 40 debris removal trucks and haulers are currently active in East Baton Rouge Parish, focusing heavily on the southern part of the parish and in neighborhoods most significantly impacted by the storm,” Broome said in a press release. “During this second pass, City-Parish environmental specialists and debris monitors will continue assessing damages on every street in impacted areas and directing trucks to collect debris removal piles.”

In September, Broome announced instructions on how to place their storm debris on the curb so crews can come to collect it. For more information on when crews are scheduled to pass on a specific street, follow this link.
