Deadline approaching for some debris removal requests
BATON ROUGE - The deadline for homeowners in Baton Rouge to apply for private property debris removal after the mid-August flooding is this week.
The program allows debris collection to go beyond curbside and into yards, with a signed right of entry agreement from a homeowner.
Applications for the program must be filed by Friday, according to the city-parish government. Renters need their landlord to complete the application.
The program is only available in the city of Baton Rouge and unincorporated parts of East Baton Rouge Parish. The cities of Baker, Central and Zachary are overseeing their own debris removal efforts.
The city-parish government says more than 1,150 homeowners have submitted right of entry agreements for the private property debris removal.
