Kenner, LA - As of today, much storm debris has been removed from Kenner's streets. However, Mayor Yenni and his staff are aware that there is still bagged debris that remains on the curbs throughout many neighborhoods. In an effort to expedite this process, Mayor Yenni has authorized additional Public Works staff to assist both Ceres Environmental and Ramelli Waste in the clean-up efforts. As of yesterday evening, Kenner now has all three debris pick up resources in place.

'With the collaboration of these three groups, I am confident that the process of storm debris removal will continue at a more rapid pace,' says Yenni. 'Citizens will see clear streets soon.'

To clarify, residents and business owners are asked to place debris curbside in the following categories:

  • White Goods/Appliances; Refrigerators (empty with door removed or secured shut) & major appliances; Ceres (via several sweeps)
  • Construction/Demolition; Carpeting, sheetrock, shingles, roofing material, fencing; Ceres (via several sweeps)
  • Unbagged Vegetative/Yard Waste; Large tree limbs, trunks, branches, and bushes; Ceres (via several sweeps)
  • Bagged Vegetative/Yard Waste; Leaves, small twigs, brush, and dirt; Ceres, Ramelli Waste, and Kenner Public Works (via several sweeps)
  • Containerized Household Garbage; Household trash, diapers, and grass clippings; Ramelli Waste (daily scheduled pick up days)

Residents and business owners are reminded that all debris will not be picked up at the same time, and that their continued patience throughout the storm recovery process is greatly appreciated.
