ASCENSION – Ascension Parish began debris removal along state highways on Monday.

Residents must visit Room 105 of the Parish Government Complex located at 615 East Worthey Street in Gonzales in order to sign the proper paperwork to have debris picked up. Residents may also call Tetra Tech at 225-348-2254 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Fridays.
"If you live along a state highway, and you still have debris remaining on your property, we are going to help you," Ascension Parish President Kenny Matassa said.
Ascension Parish officials are reminding residents that parish government crews will not demolish or pick up demolished homes.
