Officials say if debris removal crews encounter debris piles that are too large to move, they will return the following day after adding the address to a list for extensive debris removal. Debris must be placed at the street right-of-way and should not be placed in ditches, near mailboxes, fire hydrants, electrical power lines, telephone boxes or gas meters.
Further instructions from parish officials say debris placed more than 10 feet from the curb will not be picked up as those items will be considered to be on private property. Debris should also not block the roadway.
Officials will establish and publicize a public drop-off point later this week, according to Rick Webre, director of the Ascension Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness.
