BATON ROUGE – Officials are reminding residents that the deadline to apply for the City-Parish's Private Property Debris Removal program ends Oct. 7.

The program provides residents affected by the recent flooding with extended curbside collection of flood-debris removal, provided that the debris is placed within 30 feet from the public right-of-way and the City-Parish received a signed Right-of-Entry agreement from the homeowner.

More than 1,150 homeowners have submitted ROE agreements in applying for the program in the following zip codes:
70805, 70811, 70817, 70814, and 70819

As the program moves forward, crews will be moving into other ZIP codes and impacted areas based on where the services are needed the most.

Residents interested in applying for this program and extended curbside flood-related debris removal services can do so online by downloading an ROE form located at www.brgov.com/roe and emailing their completed ROE form along with a valid Louisiana ID or driver's license to BRdebris@thompsoncs.net, or in person by visiting one of the program intake centers below during the listed hours of operation:
