Lamar-Dixon accepting storm debris in Ascension Parish

Local News

BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD) – Ascension Parish residents can bring their vegetative debris to the Lamar-Dixon Expo Center in black plastic bags since the contractor working for the parish can not accept it in black trash bags.

The service starts on Thursday, August 9 and is open from 9 am until 5 pm daily.

Cointment worked out an arrangement with a locally based waste disposal company to accept the debris.

Trash Rangers, the parish based waste disposal company, will also accept normal household garbage at no fee in the days following the storm.

“I have said repeatedly that government should be helping with recovery, not hindering it,” said
Parish President Clint Cointment. “We want to provide as much help as we can so people can
recover from Hurricane Ida and return to their normal lives.”

Residents should enter Lamar-Dixon through the rear entrance from Ashland Rd. and follow the signs.
