City-Parish Releases Hurricane Ida Debris Removal Map

Baton Rouge, La. — Sept. 10, 2021 — As part of the City-Parish’s ongoing response to Hurricane Ida, Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome announced a debris collection map to provide updates on the status of debris removal in neighborhoods and promote transparency into the City-Parish’s Hurricane Ida debris removal program.

“Our debris removal crews are hard at work throughout East Baton Rouge Parish, moving as quickly as possible to collect storm debris from Hurricane Ida and help our community recover from this devastating storm,” said Mayor Broome. “With this map, we are combining our focus on using technology to improve City-Parish operations and providing transparency to the residents we serve. The map offers a real-time view of the debris removal process, helping residents understand the status of their neighborhoods and the progress our crews are making.”

The map features different colors denoting whether crews have started debris removal in a given neighborhood and the status of various passes crews will make in impacted areas. Residents can zoom in or use the search function to enter their addresses and view the status of debris removal in their neighborhoods.

This debris removal map is one of several resources available to help residents recover from Hurricane Ida. For more information, visit brla.gov/recovery.

Residents should continue to organize debris into piles — separate from trash or garbage piles — to help crews efficiently collect their debris and serve their neighborhoods. Debris removal crews cannot collect storm debris that is mixed with other household trash or types of debris. Debris piles should be placed away from trees, poles, fire hydrants and other structures that make the debris removal process difficult and delay crews in completing their work.
