Deadline to set out flood debris for pick-up in EBR Nov. 6
BATON ROUGE – The deadline for residents to put out their remaining debris curbside to the public right-of-way is Nov. 6.
Any debris that is not curbside by Nov. 6 may not be collected by crews. City-Parish officials are urging any residents who are not able to meet the final debris set-out deadline to contact the Department of Environmental Services at (225) 389-4865.
The City-Parish has a web-based form here for residents to use in reporting addresses where flood debris still needs to be collected. Residents who have moved their debris curbside should continue to use the form through Nov. 6 to report the location of their flood debris or by calling 1-888-721-4372.
Construction and reconstruction waste materials are not eligible for FEMA reimbursement and will not be collected by City-Parish debris removal crews. The disposal of such materials is the responsibility of the homeowner/contractor.
Residents who are initiating new construction or reconstruction efforts at their homes should use licensed contractors to perform this work and secure in writing how the contractor plans to dispose of any construction or reconstruction materials. To locate a licensed contractor, residents can go online to the Louisiana State Licensing Board for Contractors (LSLBC) website, located at www.lslbc.louisiana.gov, and click the "Contractor Search" button.
