Hurricane Delta Debris Removal to Begin Monday, Oct. 19

BATON ROUGE, LA – Oct. 16, 2020 – Residents are reminded City-Parish debris removal crews will begin operations MondEBR Hurricane Delta Debris Removal Diagram flyeray, Oct. 19, as part of the City-Parish’s ongoing response to damages caused by Hurricane Delta. 


Initial debris removal efforts will begin in areas with the most visible damages from the storm, including the Sherwood Forest area, Oak Hills Place subdivision off Siegen Lane, Lakeshore Drive, Mid City and areas east of Interstate 110. Crews will move into other impacted areas in the coming days in coordination with City-Parish damage assessment teams, who are continuing to assess parish-wide debris removal needs.


“Our debris removal crews quickly mobilized following Hurricane Delta and are prepared to move as quickly as possible in collecting storm debris throughout East Baton Rouge Parish,” said Mayor Broome. “I encourage our residents to use the upcoming weekend to move as much storm debris curbside as possible and to be patient as our crews make their way to all areas of our parish impacted by this storm.”  


Residents should place their storm debris curbside and away from mailboxes, water meters, fire hydrants and any other above-ground utility. Storm debris, such as tree branches and damaged fencing, and other household trash should be organized into piles based on the attached diagram.


Storm debris will be collected from all residential locations in the city limits of Baton Rouge and unincorporated areas of East Baton Rouge Parish. City-Parish debris removal crews cannot collect debris from state highways or debris located in the city limits of Baker, Zachary and Central. 


Residents do not need to contact the City-Parish once their debris is placed curbside. Republic Services will continue normal operations and collection schedules for household garbage and recycling.


City-Parish officials remind residents that any private contractors hired for storm-related damages must remove any storm debris from the premises. Residents should ensure they are hiring licensed contractors and including the removal of any resulting storm debris in their contracts.
