Flood debris in Baton Rouge must be curbside by Nov. 6
BATON ROUGE - Baton Rouge residents are being asked to haul any remaining debris left from the catastrophic mid-August flooding to their curbs by Nov. 6.
East Baton Rouge Parish Mayor-President Kip Holden's office says the debris collection efforts are reaching their final stages and flood debris not curbside by the deadline may not be collected by the removal crews hired by the parish.
A web-based form is available for residents to report specific addresses where flood debris still needs to be collected.
Holden's office says more than 1.6 million cubic yards of debris has been collected in Baton Rouge and unincorporated areas of the parish since Aug. 20.
