Storm debris curbside collection

Jefferson Parish contractors have begun collecting storm-generated debris curbside. Ceres Environmental Services, Inc. is collecting storm debris on the east bank and DRC Emergency Services; LLC is collecting storm debris on the west bank. More than one pass will be made through all neighborhoods to collect storm-generated debris.

  • Tree Limbs and Loose Vegetative Storm Debris
  • Construction and Demolition/Building Materials fencing, roofing materials
  • Household Contents furniture, carpet, etc.

Black Heavy Duty Bagged Storm Debris All leaves, small twigs, etc. must be bagged. Piles of loose leaves/twigs will not be collected. This week, in an effort to get debris off the streets as quickly as possible, IESI has brought in extra boom trucks that will collect bagged storm debris on the day preceding the regularly scheduled garbage collection, and then they will collect the regular household garbage on the scheduled collection day.

Refrigerators and other large appliances. Refrigerators MUST be emptied of all foods. Food should be placed in container for regular household garbage collection.

The following storm debris will be collected as debris removal contractors make sweeps through all areas.

Please do not place storm debris on or near mailboxes or fire hydrants, as collection activities could result in damages. Debris should not be piled under low hanging wires or tree branches, and vehicles should not be parked in front of debris piles, as equipment such as a boom truck 'claw' will not be able to access it.

If you have any questions, please call Marnie Winter, Director, Department of Environmental Affairs, at 731-4612.
