Final flood debris collection pass in ZIP codes 70815 & 70817
BATON ROUGE – City-Parish officials have announced that final flood debris collection pass efforts are underway in the 70815 and the 70817 ZIP code areas.
Debris removal crews began their final pass efforts on Nov. 7, which involve the collection of all flood debris currently placed curbside across flood-affected ZIP codes in Baton Rouge.
Once crews conduct a final pass for flood debris collection through each street in each active ZIP code, they will not return. As final pass efforts are completed within each ZIP code, additional ZIP codes will be activated for final collection passes. This process will continue until all streets in all flood-impacted areas have received a final debris collection pass.
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 any such materials is the responsibility of the homeowner and/or contractor. Residents who are initiating new construction or reconstruction efforts 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, www.lslbc.louisiana.gov, and click the "Contractor Search" button.
