Debris crews continue to work parish wide. Today they will be in the following locations:
Slidell - Carr Drive, Coin Du Lestin & Camp Salmen
Covington - Covington Country Club & Three Rivers Road
Mandeville - Lewisburg, Hwy 190 & Hwy 59
Homeowners cleaning up after storm damage should form three piles of debris curbside: vegetative, construction, white goods.
• Vegetative debris (tree limbs)
• Construction debris
• White goods and Household Hazardous Waste (appliances)
Contractors will not pick up debris that has not been sorted into the three piles (vegetative, construction and white goods) as described above.
Contractors will not pick up debris that has been placed into black plastic bags. FEMA requires that the debris being picked up meets eligibility requirements. If it is placed in a black bag, contents cannot be readily seen and certified.
St. Tammany Parish can only pick up debris on public property (rights-of-way). All debris piles must be placed in the rights-of-way. Debris haulers cannot and will not enter private property to pick up debris. The rights-of-way are generally the space between the utility poles or utility services and the roadway.
In most cases, only one pass will be made. Debris should be curbside and sorted into piles.
