Debris collection to begin next week in Tangipahoa Parish
TANGIPAHOA – Tangipahoa Parish Government will start collecting debris collection and removal on Monday, March 21, 2016. Local leaders are asking residents to separate debris into groups, and put it in the public right-of-way.
The groups of debris should be separated as follows:
- Construction and demolition materials (building, construction, materials-wood, metal, drywall, shingles etc., as well as building contents and personal property-furnishings, clothing, etc.)
- Vegetative materials (trees, limbs, leaves, etc.)
- Household hazardous waste (paints, cleaners, oils, batteries, pesticides, etc.); please make sure these materials are sealed in a container and not leaking in any way
- White goods (Refrigerators, Freezers, Washers, Dryers, etc.
Debris removal crews will not go on to private property to collect debris. It all must be separated into specific piles and placed on the side of the road. If the materials cause an unsafe traffic condition or other safety hazard, call Tangipahoa Parish Government at (985) 748-3211 for further instructions.
This is only for disaster debris, and the parish asks that you do not attempt to put household garbage in these piles. They will not be picked up. Normal trash removal services will continue on regular schedules.
