EBR debris removal to begin Monday in 5 zip codes
BATON ROUGE – Mayor Kip Holden announced that debris removal will begin work in East Baton Rouge Parish starting Monday, Aug. 22 following the recent flooding.
The removal efforts will begin in the following zip codes:
The above areas were selected based on assessments conducted on areas most heavily impacted by the flooding along with areas where residents have already started to set out flood-related debris.
Residents who live in the above zip codes are asked to put flood-related debris curbside during the weekend in accordance with this diagram.
Debris removal trucks will move into additional zip codes once contractors complete their first pass in the initial zip codes. If residents are not able to move their debris to the curbside by the time trucks pass through their neighborhoods, trucks will make additional passes in the coming weeks.
Residents can track the progress of clean-up efforts by accessing a map the City-Parish has developed and will update on a daily basis.
Additionally, residents should not bag any flood-related debris and normal household waste can be bagged and placed in garbage carts as usual.
Holden also extended the operating hours of the North Landfill this weekend. The landfill, located at 16001 Samuels Road, will be open Saturday until 5 p.m. and Sundy from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
