GONZALES - Cleanup after Hurricane Isaac continues in Ascension Parish, where a few hundred homes were damaged by the storm.

Today crews were out picking up debris. Right now,they're only picking up vegetative debris such as trees and limbs.

Parish officials will notify people when they can start putting out other debris such as metals and plastics.

They expect the removal process will take about a month. Pickups are split into five zones, which can be found by clicking here.

"Either a block will be in progress, completed or work area pending," said Brian Martinez, senior project manager for the parish. "Residents need to get their debris out now for pick-up. Don't wait. Debris pick-up is in progress. Parish residents need to have their debris moved to the right-of-way as soon as possible."

Parish officials say they will put out a list tomorrow with pickup times. Parish residents may also drop off vegetative material at Lamar-Dixon Expo Center, Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. till 7 p.m. Residents must enter Gate 4 which is the last gate on the right, off of St. Landry Road.
